Jct Baildon Road and Otley Road

Added by James Craig

Traffic signals are devoid of any form of cycle infrastructure. Narrow lanes in all directions, ambiguous signs, and a pinch point formed by a tight inside bend on a kerb just where two lanes merge into one (Bradford-bound) make for a clumsy, poorly-engineered piece of highway which has also attracted many complaints from motorists. Meetings between JC and two senior engineers, and later between JC, DR and a traffic road safety engineer, resulted in nothing; although if, at some point in the future, there need to be some works here, BMDC might consider ASLs, depending on capacity issues. The pinch point issue remains, and could have been avoided had BMDC consulted cyclists in the early stages of design. Very unsatisfactory.
