Zebra crossing changes approved outside Silsden town hall

Craven Herald: Silsden town hall Silsden town hall

The green light has been given to changes to the zebra crossing outside Silsden Town Hall.

Keighley Area Committee rejected two objections to the plans to build a plateau for the crossing on busy Kirkgate. The objectors claimed that raising the level of the road could pose a danger to pedestrians, both on the crossing and the adjacent pavement.

The work ties in with the £300,000 refurbishment of Silsden Town Hall, which includes the installation of an access ramp on the pavement alongside the crossing.

Council officers insisted the plateau was needed to make it easier for people with wheelchairs and pushchairs to navigate the crossing, pavement and ramp.

The objectors claimed the narrowing of the pavement and the addition of a ramp could lead to problems.
