Consultation on Rotherham to Tinsley walking and cycling route Phase 3

Map of Tenpleborough to Ickles



Rotherham Council is making improvements on Westgate and the A6178 Sheffield Road to make it easier and more pleasant to walk and cycle between Tinsley and the town centre.

This will help to provide affordable and environmentally friendly travel to and from Templeborough, Tinsley and Meadowhall for Rotherham residents – whether to work, shop or socialise.

The scheme will be delivered by Rotherham Council with money from the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund, subject to the final funding approval by Sheffield City Region.

The scheme is being delivered in three phases:

Phase 1 – Now completed this included adding new cycle tracks between the borough boundary and Bessemer Way.

Phase 2 – will add new cycle tracks between Bessemer Way and Centenary Way; a separate consultation on this ran from July to August 2021 and work is expected to begin in the second half of 2022.

Phase 3 – (this consultation) will improve conditions for walking and cycling between Centenary Way and the town centre and will support wider town centre regeneration. Work would begin in the second half of 2022

This document outlines the current proposals for Phase 3 of these improvements so that Rotherham businesses, residents and road-users can tell us their preferred options for specific aspects of the scheme design and share general comments.
