The Rotherham to Sheffield A630 Parkway will have overnight closures this weekend as part of the road improvement works.

The Westbound (Sheffield bound) carriageway of the A630 Parkway will be closed between Catcliffe and the M1 junction 33 on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 May from 8pm until 6am. Signs will direct traffic along alternative routes.

Traffic will be diverted via Rotherham: A630 West Bawtry Road, A630 Centenary Way, A6178 Sheffield Road, M1 J34 Tinsley, A631 Shepcote Lane and Europa Link.

The road improvements are part of a programme that will create an extra lane in each direction between Catcliffe Junction and the M1 (within the road’s existing footprint) and widen the roundabout and slip roads at M1 Junction 33.

Rotherham Council’s Strategic Director for Regeneration and Environment, Paul Woodcock, said: “The works will make a real difference to thousands of commuters’ journeys in the region every day and will also feed into our ongoing work to improve the air quality in the borough. We thank residents, road users and local businesses for their patience while this work takes place.”

The road improvement work is being carried out on behalf of Rotherham Council by its contractor Balfour Beatty and is funded through Central Government from the Local Growth Fund. The Council and Balfour Beatty are working closely with stakeholders including Highways England, Sheffield City Council and the Environment Agency to deliver the scheme.
