Manchester Road will be closed again this weekend as the iconic new cycling and walking bridge continues to be built.
Bradford Council has worked with the charity Sustrans to deliver the installation this distinctive bridge paid for by the Big Lottery Fund, after the charity secured £50m in a public vote.
Manchester Road will be closed from 4am on Saturday, May 19, until late evening on Sunday, May 20.
Motorists are advised to avoid Manchester Road altogether and follow the diversions on the ring roads unless access is required to businesses and homes.
The main part of the bridge was lifted in last week so it reached from the landscaped area outside Newby Primary School to just over Manchester Road, but works will continue to extend the bridge over Hutson Street and into the new Trident park.
The construction team will also install the ramp down on to Manchester Road footway and CCTV and lighting cables.
The bridge will be made of more than 350 tonnes of steel and will be 210 metres long with two main spans over Manchester Road of 22 metres and 24 metres.
The bridge will form an important gateway to the city and link up the greenway routes to the university and St Luke's Hospital as well as connecting East and West Bowling with Marshfields and Little Horton.
The scheme is part of a UK-wide project creating new walking and cycling links for everyday journeys in the heart of communities across the country.
