Motorists in Thurcroft will benefit from further improvements to one of the major roads through the village this summer.

Resurfacing and reconstruction work will take place from the beginning of August, on a section of the B6060 Green Arbour Road, immediately to the south of the school and shops, as far as Toad Lane. 
 
The work is the latest phase of a major repair programme to the road, with the first two phases having been completed in the previous two summers.
 
Temporary traffic lights will be in operation at all times of the day, seven days a week, for the majority of the work. 
 
Towards the end of the works, in early autumn, night time closures will be in place for a brief period of time, with a local diversion in place.
 
Colin Knight, Rotherham Council’s Head of Service for Highways, said: “These are important repair works and Thurcroft residents will see real improvements to this main road through the village as a result.
 
“We apologise in advance for any inconvenience these works may cause to local residents and motorists, however we have scheduled the majority of the work to take place in the school holidays when traffic flows are lower.
 
“We always aim to keep any disruption and noise levels to an absolute minimum.  However, if members of the public do experience any problems as a result of these works, or would like more information, our team on site will be happy to help.”
