There is currently considerable queuing causing delays along the B6089 (Car Hill/Potter Hill/Cinder Bridge Road), particularly during peak times. This improvement scheme will provide extra capacity at key junctions for all traffic along the route, providing journey time and reliability benefits for commuters, business users and public transport providers.
The B6089 runs through the Bassingthorpe Farm strategic housing allocation site, so the project will also help facilitate the delivery of the planned 2,500 homes and 11ha of Employment Land. This investment will assist regeneration of the local area as well as improving links between Rotherham and the regionally important Dearne Valley Growth Area.
This project includes a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund resources which is part of the Government’s continued investment in the Northern Powerhouse.
SCR LGF allocation: £3,300,000
Total project cost: £3,300,000
