I think you can rule out underground tunnel... this is a flood plain so you would require scuba gear a lot of the time...

there has been several attempts to get a crossing over the trunk road, the answer is always that it is too expensive.Personally I think that is wrong, other areas have crossings so why not steeton and silsden

anyone know how much a bridge would cost? I suppose it depends on who gets the contract

When the big plan from Bradford about Silsden went to the Inspector it was rejected. The Inspector obviously came on the train and obviously had a death and glory moment crossing the by-pass. So, if there is one thing stopping Sislden being swamped with new housing it is the lack of a pedestrian crossing over the by-pass.
It actually requires a proper cycle/pedestrian path and bridge which in the present situation is unlikely.

You could use a Bus.
But my luck is that when I see the bus I think I'm in luck the bus is waiting for us!
Then they drive off just as the train is about to open the doors. It's the same in Ilkley.
So please, better timetables or a bridge would be nice!
