|Title:||North Bridge to Reopen For Traffic|
|ID & Publication:||20120911023 ~ The-Villager.co.uk |
Works to reopen Doncaster’s North Bridge for all outbound traffic are to start on Monday 24 September.
The North Bridge, part of North Bridge Road, which connects the town centre with north Doncaster, has been limited to buses, taxis, cyclists and pedestrians since St George’s Bridge opened in 2002.
The works will take up to eight weeks to complete and will mean all motorists can use the bridge heading out of Doncaster. The existing restrictions will remain for inbound traffic and the wide footpath and cycleway will not be affected.
Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: ‘Improving our transport network opens up a world of opportunities and is a top priority. We have two bridges which connect north Doncaster to the town centre and through successful negotiations we have been able to relax the restrictions to make both available to all motorists.
‘Reopening North Bridge should reduce congestion in a notorious bottleneck and speed up journey times. Passing traffic will be of significant benefit to businesses in Marshgate and the project should encourage further regeneration and economic growth in that area. Its reopening ties in nicely with Christmas and is a timely present for commuters and visitors.’
The scheme includes traffic signals for safe access into Marshgate and safe exit from the North Bridge Depot, new road markings and signage.
