One-way system proposal for Keighley town centre

A one-way system to ease congestion in Keighley town centre could be in place next year.

The clockwise one-way system using East Parade, Hanover Street and Cavendish Street is part of a £1.4 million scheme being proposed for the town.

The system would also involve banning right turns into Bradford Road from Gresley Road and Low Mill Lane, and from Coney Lane into East Parade; creating new pedestrian crossings; introducing a 20mph speed limit and other traffic management measures.

Proposals also include alternative parking layouts in Cavendish Street and Hanover Street and altering signal times to improve traffic flow at other locations on the approaches to the town centre. If members of the Keighley Area Committee, which meets on Thursday, support the continued development of scheme, public consultation will begin in March.
