Judith Cummins MP today (24/06/2016) took a guided tour of the soon to open Sunbridgewells scheme in Bradford city centre together with Graham Hall, the man behind the development.
Speaking after the tour Judith said: “It was wonderful to get a preview of the scheme before its first phase opens next month and fascinating to see what has been hidden beneath our feet for so long.
Bradford has great history and civil engineering to match, so it’s good to see both revealed in a fresh use supporting new business and creating new jobs.
It’s an exciting project that will add to the vibrancy and diversity of Bradford’s city centre.”
In a £1.5m project the Victorian tunnels are being redeveloped into a retail scheme for shops, bars and restaurants.
