Investing in infrastructure, including highways, is a key part of our efforts to unlock economic growth in the Sheffield City Region.
This project is currently in development. The Combined Authority will consider the proposal through its usual project assurance framework to make sure that any investment unlocks economic growth and contributes to the Sheffield City Region’s ambitions to create 70,000 additional jobs, build 7,000 homes a year and create £3.1bn of additional GVA.
The project aims to provide additional capacity to allow additional development to come forward in the vicinity of Junction 37 of the M1 at Capital Park. The project aims to improve access to/from the M1 from Barnsley, relieve congestion in the immediate area and on the southbound exit from the M1 and alleviate air pollution.
This project, which is currently in delivery, includes a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund resources which is part of the Government’s continued investment in the Northern Powerhouse.
