During the construction of Princes Way in Bradford, an inner city ring road which obliterated the Victoria Square roundabout, it was necessary to change the traffic flow in Little Horton Lane by making inbound traffic turn left and join Morley Street, whilst outbound traffic for Morley Street came up Little Horton Lane and turned right. This involved the creation of a short connecting road named Glydegate after Glyde House, just visible on the right, and which became (along with the last bit of Morley Street) the last roads in the UK to be newly wired for trolleybuses.
