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 Worksop schemes are a series of highway improvements, split over three phases, contributing to the redevelopment of a key brownfield employment site (Vesuvius Works), ultimately leading to the creation of between 2,500 to 6,000 new jobs over 15 years and contributing to the development of circa 48 hectares of new employment land and 1,600 new houses.
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.
This investment is planning to deliver 1,262 jobs.
