    Flooded due to the other council involved giving permission for a private fishing club to build on one side.

    Ward councillours are against the idea as well. The six ward councillours have decided to turn against their idea of reopening Box Hill Tunnel & viaduct as well.

    Clear the drains on the Queensbury end and the water should follow the route that was put in place when the tunnel was built.

    The drain, as it is at present, running through the tunnel was put in place at a later date.

    I cycle commute Halifax to Bradford and a tunnel to miss some of the road would be great, it's not the nicest of routes

    There are a few downsides to this.
    1. The school near the entrance on the Halifax side.
    2. Planned relocation of the main council recycling site. Off the approach road to the tunnel. As long as the planned reopening is on the cards, the recycling centre can't be relocated. Current site is up for sale.
    3. You have to, at some point, either travel or cross the A629. Not a quiet road at any time of day.

    I commute on the A629 twice a day and it's not to bad apart from the climb up the dual carriageway from Shroggs Road as I always seem to get close passes on that section which I'm pretty sure are punishment passes as dual carriageway means Motorway obviously :rolleyes: plus a 40mph limit means 50-60mph for some reason yet the section down from the Orange Street roundabout and everyone sticks to the limit and gives me plenty of room ?

    I'm going to make my objection now- this would be so shortsighted and a massive F You to plans for cycling and Co2 reduction.

    Filling it in may actually be illegal. Meaning Bradford Council will be breaking the law closing it off this way.
