As part of the improvements along Doncaster’s A6182 White Rose Way, carriageway surfacing works will take place at Lady Bank junction between 9pm on Friday 15 February and 6am on Monday 18 February 2013.
Temporary traffic management arrangements and diversions will be in place during the weekend to allow these essential works to take place safely. This will include turning restrictions at the roundabout and the night time closure (9pm to 6am) of the road over the railway lines between Lady Bank and Potteric Carr roundabouts for all inbound and outbound traffic.
Signposted diversions will be in place on the approaches. Full details of the restricted turnings and diversions are available at: www.doncaster.gov.uk/wrw
Mayor of Doncaster, Peter Davies, said: ‘Work on this key route is progressing well and everything is on track for the new look White Rose Way to be completed and open in the summer.
‘With the new bridge and additional lanes being used, motorists can see how these improvements will help ease congestion and speed up journey times.
‘The important scheme will also unlock development sites around Lakeside and the town centre helping to attract new investment, deliver economic growth and provide new housing and jobs. Doncaster is on the up!’
The works will see the Potteric Carr roundabout (near B&Q) and Lady Bank roundabout (near Lakeside Shopping Village) turned into intelligent traffic signalised junctions.
The entire route from Junction 3 of the M18 into the town centre will also become dual carriageway as part of the Doncaster Southern Gateway Improvement Scheme.
The council is working closely with its contractor Balfour Beatty Regional Civil Engineering to minimise disruption during these works.
Doncaster Council’s Transportation team has led on the development of the White Rose Way scheme, pulled together and submitted funding bids and is 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).
