Where is the Clean Air Zone?

The Clean Air Zone has been designed to improve air quality in areas where it's worst and where poor air quality is impacting the most on people's health. It will help people to breathe better and reduce other health risks too.

The Bradford zone covers the area inside, and including, the Bradford outer ring road.

It also extends out along the Aire valley corridor, (Manningham Lane/Bradford Road and Canal Road area) to include Shipley and Saltaire.

The image below shows the boundary of the Bradford Clean Air Zone. To view a full sized map, visit our interactive CAZ map.
