Manvers to Wath cycle route (and Manvers Way footbridge)

Cycle Path on the north side or Moor road
Moor Road Cycle Path

A high quality, direct cycle route has been created between the A633 Manvers Way and Wath town centre, allowing residents and workers easy access between the key employment sites of Manvers and Wath-upon-Dearne, via Manvers Way.

The route links Manvers Way and Moor Road with a two-way cycle track, joining Moor Road at its northern end. The cycle route continues across Biscay Way, via a dedicated cycle crossing, and continues along the southern section of Moor Road to lead into Wath town centre.

The scheme was delivered by Rotherham Council with money secured from the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority.
