Work on this important road improvement scheme started on 22 July 2019 and is expected to last around two years. Motorists are advised to use other routes into Doncaster where they can to avoid delays.
We will look to post updates on social media in advance of the key works taking place to let people know. Please follow MyDoncaster.
The West Moor Link scheme is a key infrastructure scheme which will deliver significant benefits for road users and our borough.
Frequently asked questions
Will traffic access be maintained?
During the majority of the works there will only need to be a lane closure. This will maintain access for traffic, however the lane closures will see some delays particularly in the morning rush hour. When possible we will look to remove lane closures to minimise disruption.
Are any road closures planned and if so when?
Why is the project going to take so long?
Working under lane closures means it can take longer to complete elements of the scheme than it would take if we closed the road for an extended period. However, the impact of an extended road closure to complete the highways work is considered too disruptive.
The works on the bridge requires us to close the railway line, over the bridge, which will cause disruption to the freight operators who use it. This has taken significant planning and negotiations with Network Rail to schedule in. The bridge replacement took place early in 2021.
We will be doing all we can to reduce the time it takes to complete the project. Works on the bridge are programmed to be complete by 26th March 2021. Work will then start on widening the road to make this section a dual carriageway. This will significantly improve traffic flows and support new developments once complete.
Will a pedestrian route be maintained?
How will this affect residents and businesses located on the proposed section of works?
What about getting to work or dropping children off at school?
