Road resurfacing works set to affect travel to the BRI site via Smith Lane

WORK will be carried out by Bradford Council on Smith Lane – at the rear of the Bradford Royal Infirmary site in stages from Wednesday, 16 October to Friday, 25 October (weather permitting.).

The road resurfacing work is to be split into two sections (A & B) for minimal disruption to road users (see attached plans).

There will be two phases to the works:

  • Planing – to remove the existing road surface
  • Resurfacing – to lay the new road surface

Throughout the works:

  • Pedestrian access will NOT be affected
  • Vehicle access to and from the main car park (Gate 6) will be maintained
  • Buses will be operating on a diverted route

Section B works (from the Gate 6 Main Car Park to Daisy Hill Back Lane) will start on Wednesday, 16 October at 9.30am with road surface planing. This section of the road will be closed off for the duration of the works and there will be NO vehicle access and egress (except for emergency vehicles).

The following entrances to site will be closed during the works (9.30am to approximately 7pm)

  • Gate 5 – Maternity Wing
