Construction work on Cleveland Street and Wood Street

Visitors to Doncaster City Centre will have noticed construction work on both Cleveland Street and Wood Street.

Phase Two of the Quality Streets Programme – which aims to prioritise active travel improvements within the areas – has begun and will see the following works take place:

  • A bi-directional cycle lane connecting Doncaster Train Station with the Civic and Cultural Quarter.
  • Improvements for pedestrians including wider pavements and better paving.
  • Improved bus stops and real time information points.
  • The introduction of one-way elements on parts of both streets.
  • Improvements to the highway.
  • Improved green spaces including trees and planting.

The works will take place over the next 13-months, with the aim of being completed by Winter 2023. A full road closure will be in place on Cleveland Street for approximately seven-months, with further information sent to residents and business owners in the areas.

Cllr Joe Blackham, Cabinet member for Highways, Infrastructure and Enforcement at Doncaster Council, said: “I want to thank everybody for their work and patience during phase one of the Quality Streets programme, which saw St Sepulchre and Duke Street transformed into a more pedestrian and cyclist friendly area. Some of the work to the area has included a resurfaced carriageway as well as the installation of new planting and paving.

“It has been fantastic to see how the area now looks and I look forward to seeing the progress that will be made on Cleveland and Wood Street. It will now be even easier for residents and cyclists to move around our city centre at a time when the cost of travel and the effect of travel have almost never been as costly as they are at present.”

Further communications will be given at the appropriate times in relation to changes to bus routes within the area. Any further information can be found by emailing quality.streets@doncaster.gov.uk
