Road improvements for DinningtonPublished Friday, 28th July 2017
Dinnington residents will see improvements to local roads as Rotherham Council’s 2020 Roads Programme begins resurfacing works in the area.
Motorists are being warned they may experience potential disruption from Monday (31 July) when the first set of resurfacing works begins at Barleycroft Lane. Work will then take place on the following roads:
• Sections of Laughton Road
• New Road
• Lidgett Lane
Diversions will be in place, and works on the latter roads will only take place at off peak times (9.30am – 3.30pm). The roadworks have also been scheduled to take place in the school holidays when traffic is likely to be less busy.
Colin Knight, Rotherham Council’s Head of Service, Highways, said: “We apologise for any disruption experienced by local residents and businesses, however this work is essential to improve the roads in the area, and we hope people will appreciate the benefits once the work is completed.
“We aim to keep residents and businesses informed and if anyone has any questions, staff on site will be happy to talk through any concerns,” he added.
From April 2017, the Council is investing an additional £10 million in improving roads across the borough, as part of the 2020 Roads Programme. In 2017/18 the aim is to improve over 60km of Rotherham’s roads – just over 37 miles.
Works will be aimed at resurfacing many of Rotherham's estate roads, complementing the wider package of road maintenance. Local councillors have been asked to nominate streets in their local communities to benefit from this extra funding.
