Added by James Craig

No current safe cycle/ family cycle route connects the NCN on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal Towpath route, with lower Baildon (Hoyle Court etc) and Esholt Lane, via Buck Lane. Need for joint use provision, toucans etc. Current bridleway from Buck Lane includes a horse style and is not suitable for families with bikes. tandems etc. Jctn Roundwood Road/ Otley Road is a nightmare to cross at the best of times, and lack of traffic signals at so busy a junction, is ludicrous. Site visit arranged with Road Safety Officer, July 2016. BMDC advises (Oct 2016) cost for improvements to be £12k (not including traffic signals at bottom of Roundwood Road) and is on schedule for Area Committee. BMDC since indicated that they would survey the jct with Roundwood Road to ascertain whether traffic signals might be justified there.
