Residents in Steeton and Silsden have been waiting far too long for this bridge to be built.
Last year, Robbie secured the funds to build the bridge. Now, it is high time Labour-run Bradford Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority get their act together and stop delaying this project.
Our local Labour-run authorities are sitting on millions of pounds of taxpayers money and their sluggish, lack-lustre approach is infuriating. Money has been given to them to build the bridge by our Conservative government and their dither and delay is incredibly frustrating to all residents. Local residents, including children who need to cross the busy dual carriageway continue to take their life into their own hands every time they attempt to make the crossing.
It is unbelievable it took our local Labour-run authorities 4 years to complete their initial feasibility study, and that it was only released in 2020, after I chased for it.
Robbie needs your help to put more pressure on Bradford Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority to make them realise just how important this project is. You can help by signing Robbie's petition below and he will take it to Bradford Council and West Yorkshire Combined Authority to urge the bridge be built as soon as possible.
