Rotherham Council is making improvements on Wellgate, Broom Road and Broom Valley Road to enable more journeys to be made by bicycle between the south east of town and central Rotherham (including its onward rail and bus services).
This will help reduce reliance on private car travel, alleviate traffic congestion, improve air quality, increase access to employment areas and enable people to have more active lifestyles.
The work will be delivered in two phases:
Creating dedicated cycle tracks on Wellgate and Broom Road, between Hollowgate and Boswell Street.
Implementing measures to improve conditions for pedestrians and cyclists using Broom Valley Road and address local concerns about traffic volumes and speeds on this residential road.
This public consultation is asking for feedback on the:
- detail of the proposed designs for Phase 1
- broad approach to be adopted for Phase 2.
Subject to funding, we hope Phase 1 construction will be able to begin in late 2021 and be completed by spring 2022.
Subject to community support, the Council will seek further funding to deliver Phase 2 of the scheme during 2022.
This consultation closed on Sunday 7 November 2021.
