Overview of the work
Expected Start and Completion Dates
March 2021 to Spring 2022
- Reduce congestion
- Shorter journey times
- Improve air quality
- Additional road safety features for pedestrians and road users, including cyclists
The mini roundabout where Coach Road meets Main Street and Potter Hill will be replaced by a three-way crossroads, with traffic lights and dedicated left and right turn lanes.
Paths around the junction will be widened to provide cycle routes, and new crossings for pedestrians and cyclists will be installed.
The new junction’s boundaries will extend onto the land where Greasbrough Town Halll used to stand, and this will be landscaped and given new planting to provide a pleasant public space, as part of the scheme.
The work will be carried out by Esh Construction, on behalf of Rotherham Council, and will take place in two main phases:
Phase 1 will construct the boundaries of the new junction, create surface water drainage systems and install new cycle and foot paths; this will take place between April and July 2021.
Phase 2 will see construction of the new junction carriageways and installation of traffic lights and crossings; this will take place between November 2021 and spring 2022.
Between these two phases, utilities providers will move power and telecoms services.
