Large roadwork schemes

Cleveland Street and Wood Street - Quality Streets Programme

The bottom of Wood Street is currently closed in one direction from Cleveland Street to Cash Converters – one-way travel towards Cleveland Street from Waterdale only permitted 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.

Cleveland Street is now open to buses and taxis in one direction through the bus gate - it is now permanently one way from Duke Street to Printing Office Street. 

Surfacing is complete and Wood Street is now permanently one way from Young Street to Cleveland Street - Further works will continue on the footways until around the end of September 2023 when the scheme is due to be completed

Wood Street and Printing Office Street will be closed between the hours of 19:00 and 06:00 from Monday 9th October 2023 until Friday 13th October 2023 for surfacing works

Cycle Lane and Active Travel schemes

iPort bus and active travel scheme

Plans include construction of a new 500m bus and active travel link. A new bus, pedestrian, and cycle bridge across the River Torne between New Rossington and the iPort Logistics Park and Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (iPort) located in south-east Doncaster to improve direct access for public transport and active travel. Funding is courtesy of Transforming Cities Fund (South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority).

The scheme is planned to be completed by December 2023 but once surfacing is complete most of the work will take place within the site with new signals to be installed later in the year on the junction. The contractors for the project are: 


Thorne Road TCF Scheme - Phase 2

The works include re-kerbing the north side to create a footway/cycleway, infilling the subway, installation of traffic signals, ducting and planing and carpeting the road from Wentworth Road to Town Fields. We are looking to remove the central refuges and create more working space to enable us to maintain two-way traffic flows but there will be a requirement for two-way lights at some times during the works.

We will undertake the resurfacing on a number of Sundays using road closures, including side roads. Where possible we will look to do this during the school holidays and bank holidays (except Christmas)

We anticipate a commencement date for the works of around Oct 2023 with a duration of around 6 months


Sandford Road and Tickhill Road, Balby - Active Travel Scheme

Work will start on phase 1 of the Sandford Road Active Travel Scheme on Monday 24th July 2023 and has been planned to coincide with the school holidays to have as little disruption as possible. 

This phase of the scheme will see the refurbishment of the traffic signals at the junction of Sandford Road/Tickhill Road/Weston Road to make the crossing points a lot more pedestrian friendly with a new crossing point added. 

We will also be improving all active travel movements between the junction and the entrance to the hospital on Tickhill Road including upgrading the street lighting in the area.

We are anticipating to finish this phase of the scheme by the end of October when hopefully we will be in a position to start phase 2 which runs from this scheme towards Balby Road.
