|Title:||Free Flow Arrangement to Keep Traffic Moving on White Rose Way|
|ID & Publication:||20120911013 ~ The-Villager.co.uk |
A free flowing traffic arrangement will be introduced at the Lady Bank junction on White Rose Way from Monday 17 September to help keep traffic moving and allow essential works to take place.
The traffic management measure will allow road users heading from Junction 3 of the M18 towards Doncaster town centre to carry on along the A6182 White Rose Way without having to give way to other road users at the junction.
Motorists who would normally use the Wilmington Drive exit for the Lakeside area will need to make a minor detour up to Middle Bank roundabout and back down to the junction.
The arrangement will be in place until the works to create a new intelligent traffic signalised junction and the remaining elements of the Doncaster Southern Gateway Improvement Scheme are complete in spring 2013.
The improvements are part of plans to make the entire route a dual carriageway, which will reduce congestion, speed up journey times and allow sites around Lakeside and other parts of town to be developed.
Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: ‘These important works are motoring along nicely. Once complete next year we will have the right infrastructure in place for development sites to be exploited and this will help attract private sector investment, drive economic growth and bring new jobs.
‘Most motorists will find the free flow arrangement leads to quicker journey times, while everyone will benefit once the improvements are complete and the new look route opens.’
All road users are asked to pay attention to the signs on the approaches and along the route and follow any signposted diversions. Further information is available on: www.doncaster.gov.uk/wrw
The council is working closely with its contractor Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering to minimise disruption.
Doncaster Council’s Transportation team has led on the development of the White Rose Way scheme, pulled together and submitted funding bids and are managing the project.
The project has attracted £10million of investment from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of Europe’s support for the region’s economic development and £9.7million from the Department for Transport (DfT).
