ANSWERS are being demanded as to why a feasibility study into a new bridge has still not begun – over a year after hundreds of thousands of pounds were awarded to carry it out. The Government gave £700,000 for investigations into a footbridge over one of Keighley district’s busiest and fastest roads. Plus a six-figure Section 106 sum was pledged by a developer. But an angry councillor says the study into the proposed bridge, which would span the Aire Valley trunk road and link Steeton and Silsden, is still nowhere near starting. And he fears the delays could lead to funding being lost. Although Bradford Council is spearheading the feasibility study, the money was allocated to West Yorkshire Combined Authority.

WHARFEDALE politicians have been trying out a new bus service designed to open up the Yorkshire Dales. Dales Bus launched its Nidderdale Rambler 821 summer service on Bank Holiday Monday, May 7. The bus takes passengers from Guiseley White Cross, Otley and several villages in the Washburn Valley - as well as Keighley, Bingley, Saltaire and Shipley - into the heart of Nidderdale. Running on Sundays and Bank holidays through to Sunday, September 30, it is the result of fundraising by Friends of Dales Bus. Members of the group were out in force to see their work pay off last Monday, when passengers streamed aboard.
