Creating a super-connected city region is an important objective for the Sheffield City Region. We are committed to investing in enabling transport infrastructure.
This project delivers a 2.9km road from J5 M18 to unlock the Unity mixed-use development comprising 3,100 houses, commercial floor space and local centre, retail and educational facilities. The road will also provide better connectivity for existing settlements.
The project forms part of the £320m Sheffield City Region Infrastructure Fund (SCRIF). This fund includes a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund resources which is part of the Government’s continued investment in the Northern Powerhouse.
This investment is expected to deliver 7,681 jobs.
SCR LGF allocation: £11,155,000
Total project cost: £15,855,000
