Cleveland Street - Quality Streets Programme

Cleveland Street is currently closed from Duke Street to Printing Office Street for up to 6 months while the Council’s contractors, Eurovia Contracting North, carry out regeneration works on the second phase of the Quality Streets Programme – which aims to prioritise active travel improvements within the area.
Printing Office Street / Silver Street / Hall Gate can be access via Trafford Way and Cleveland Street – the bus gate will be suspended for this time.
Buses and taxis have been diverted and will use Waterdale for this period, with some bus services remaining on Waterdale permanently.
Once Cleveland Street is complete, we will then close the bottom of Wood Street from its junction with Cleveland Street to Young Street.
When all the works are complete, Cleveland Street will be permanently one way from Duke Street to Printing Office Street and Wood Street will be permanently one way from Young Street to Cleveland Street. Please visit the following page for more information: Quality Streets and Active Travel

A630 traffic signal improvements

October 2022 – April 2023

There is a “rolling” programme of works in place at several junctions along A630.

As of 14/11/22, this affects Warmsworth at Sheffield Road / Edlington Lane / Mill Lane.

In conjunction with South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), Doncaster Council has secured funding* to install the latest Bus Priority system to the traffic signals on the A630 from Conisbrough to Balby flyover. To enable the bus priority to be installed each set traffic signals will be upgraded to the latest technology including improved traffic signal controller, LED traffic signal heads, self-optimising congestion management system (MOVA) and integration into bus priority servers. Each set of traffic signals will undergo a full timing review and optimised to assist bus movements, general traffic and pedestrians. It is anticipated that works will start late summer 2022 and be completed by April 2023.
