Green light for £14M improvements to A57 in Rotherham

Work on a new £14M dual carriageway improvement on the A57 in Rotherham was yesterday given the green light by local transport minister Norman Baker.

The new 1.6km stretch of road will run from the M1 Junction 31 to the B6463 junction. The scheme aims to unlock economic growth potential in the Dinnington regeneration area and improve road safety on this stretch of road.

“The £11.8M we are putting into this scheme shows that this government is serious about investing in the infrastructure the country needs to drive economic growth,” said Baker.

The A57 M1 to Todwick scheme was one of 10 given funding approval as part of the Spending Review announcement in February last year. Work can now start on the main construction with the road scheduled to open in December 2013.
