SPEED LIMIT (NO.*) ORDER 20**
B6144 HAWORTH ROAD (LANESIDE), WILSDEN
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council proposes to make the above Order under their powers contained in the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 the general effect of which will be to introduce a 20 miles per hour speed limit on B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) from a point 192 metres east of its junction with Old Allen Road, to a point 26 metres south east of its junction with Bents Lane, to encourage appropriate vehicle speeds on the approach to, and through, the Laneside hamlet.
It is also proposed to introduce a 20mph speed limit on the following lengths of carriageway within the immediate vicinity of the hamlet at Laneside:
i. The whole of the adopted length of Station Road - from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 770 meters in a south westerly direction.
ii. That section of Brown Lee Lane from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 62 metres in a northerly direction
iii. That section of Old Allen Road from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 110 metres in a southerly direction
The intention is that the proposed 20mph speed limits will help protect vulnerable road users, including children, pedestrians and cyclists, and decrease the risk of being injured in a collision and/or the resulting severity. It is also considered that the proposed 20mph speed limits may have a positive effect on encouraging walking and cycling activity, as well as helping to reduce severance and enhance liveability.
It is also proposed to introduce 30mph speed limits on the following lengths of carriageway: -
iv. B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) from a point 26 metres south east of its junction with Bents Lane, to a point 510 metres north west of its junction with Bents Lane
v. Bents Lane - from its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 17 metres in a north westerly direction.
vi. Old Allen Road - from a point 110 metres south of its junction with B6144 Haworth Road (Laneside) for a distance of 385 metres in a southerly direction.
The proposed 30mph speed limits are intended to act as 'buffer zones' between lengths of carriageway subject to exiting speed limits higher than 30mph, and the proposed 20mph speed limit lengths.
