Bradford Interchange Access Improvements

Work to improve the main entrance to Bradford Interchange is scheduled to start week commencing 21 May for nine weeks.

The redevelopment aims to improve the safety, accessibility and operation for all users. The project will provide the following benefits on completion:

  • Dedicated, public pick up and drop off area;
  • Central, dedicated taxi rank, accessed by zebra crossings;
  • New guard railing to improve pedestrian safety;
  • Improved and elongated pedestrian crossing at the entrance to the site; and
  • Complete resurfacing of the area including the use of high quality materials.

Although some disruption during construction is likely, we aim to maintain safe pedestrian access and a Hackney Carriage taxi service. Short stay car parking and general vehicle access will not be available.

Alternative parking can be found at the Britannia Street car park situated at the rear of the bus station. The car park is operated by Bradford Council and parking fees start at 50p for the first hour. Blue Badge holders will find two marked disabled spaces and are exempt from parking fees in any space.

Bradford Council have made an area available for Bradford Interchange passengers to use as a temporary pick up and drop off point during works. This includes private hire taxis as well as private cars and can be found on Vicar Lane, off the junction with Bridge Street behind the ‘Cineworld’ cinema. A light controlled crossing allows pedestrians to cross Bridge Street to a ramp giving access to Bradford Interchange Rail Station and the lower concourse of the bus station.

Project Description: Construction of a revised layout to improve site access and safety, by reducing conflict between users and limiting pedestrian infringements.

Objective: Improve accessibility and address current site safety and operational issues within the main pedestrian access area to Bradford Interchange, off Bridge Street.

Overall Cost: Approx. £210k
