Keighley signs offer boost for blind pedestrians

New warning signs have been introduced outside the Airedale premises in Keighley that alert motorists to the presence of blind people.

Keighley Town Council has supplied £470 to fund the signage, which were installed by Bradford Council's highways department, reports Keighley News.

Speaking to the news provider, councillor Graham Mitchell, chairman of the town council’s watch and transport committee, said: "Town councillor Judith Brooksbank first brought the lack of appropriate signage on Scott Street to the attention of the committee in 2010 and it has taken a long time to achieve this result."

Mr Mitchell added that, after on-site discussions, it was clear that Bradford could supply the signage but would not be able to afford the associated costs.

The work will be sure to make the roads an easier place to navigate for the visually impaired, while causing drivers to be more aware of their surroundings.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801405848-ADNFCR
