Large roadwork schemes

Cycle Lane and Active Travel schemes

We’re improving sustainable transport facilities in Doncaster to provide new walking and cycling infrastructure and improved connections to green spaces, schools and employment sites. These improvements are part of a wider plan to develop a better connected and safer network of walking and cycling routes, offering people more choice of how they travel, and reducing reliance on vehicles.

Thorne Road Tranforming Cities Fund 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

We anticipate a commencement date for the works of around February 2024 with a duration of around 6 months

 

Sandford Road and Tickhill Road, Balby - Active Travel Scheme

We’re improving sustainable transport facilities in Balby to provide new walking and cycling infrastructure and improved connections to green spaces, schools and employment sites. These improvements are part of a wider plan to develop a better connected and safer network of walking and cycling routes across Doncaster, offering people more choice of how they travel, and reducing reliance on vehicles.

The scheme will provide new walking and cycling infrastructure along Sandford Road, between the Woodfield Greenway, Tickhill Hospital and Balby Road. Throughout these areas there will be carriageway surfacing improvements, upgrades to signalised crossings and street lighting and installation of cycle parking provision along this corridor.

The construction is being done in stages to minimise the level of disruption as much as possible. 

Construction on the northbound side of Sandford Road (from the junction with Weston Road and Tickhill Road towards Balby Road) began on Monday 19th February 2024 and is expected to complete by 31st May. A road closure will be in place at the junction with Weston Road whilst this work takes place.

Advanced warning signs will be in place and a diversion along Tickhill Road will be in place during the closures. Bus services will be re-routed to follow the diversion and a temporary bus stop will be in operation at the junction of Tickhill Road and Byron Road.

Access for residents will be maintained during any closures however YW may need to ask you to wait while we move machinery to let you pass. YW will kindly request that journeys through closures are kept to a minimum during our working hours, this will help them complete the work as quickly as possible.
