Finningley And Rossington Regeneration Route Scheme (FARRRS)
The construction of the new road has officially started.
The FARRRS project will provide a new highway from the M18 at junction 3 to Robin Hood airport, with links into Rossington village and the Inland Port development.
The project will improve access to Rossington and Finningley, cater for new developments such as the Inland Port and growth at the airport and provide an alternative route into Doncaster from the south avoiding Bawtry Road. Existing accesses and Public Rights of Way will be retained and the scheme will include landscaping and improvements to the environment.
The project is being funded by
The Government’s Regional Growth Fund and Growing Places Fund
Private sector developer contributions
Doncaster Council Corporate Resources
- The Sheffield City Region Transport Strategy
This will provide sufficient funding to allow for construction up to the A638 at Parrot’s Corner. A funding strategy is being developed to complete the final phase from the A638 to the airport access at Hurst Lane and will be subject to a separate delivery process.
Planning permission was granted in June 2012. Financial and land agreements have now been completed to allow the main construction works to start. The road will become operational in early 2016.
For further information on the scheme see the documents section on this page.
