Title:Regeneration route connects to motorway network

Works to link the Finningley and Rossington Regeneration Route Scheme (FARRRS) to Junction 3 of the M18 will start next week.

The new link road from the motorway network to the south of Doncaster will unlock a range of projects which will drive inward investment, create jobs and growth and boost the local and regional economy. This major infrastructure project, led by Doncaster Council, will support expansion plans at Robin Hood Airport and the new Enterprise Zone, see Harworth Estates build 1,200 homes on the former Rossington Colliery Site and see iPort – a strategic rail freight interchange – get up and running.

To allow contractor Carillion to carry out these works safely, lane closures will be installed on the slip roads and the roundabout at Junction 3 of the M18 from next Monday (31 March) for a period of three weeks.

To avoid travel disruption as much as possible, the lane closures will take place during off peak hours on weekdays between 9.30am to 3.30pm.

As part of FARRRS the existing roundabout will be made larger and extended southwards. The works over the next three weeks will see this new part of the roundabout partially constructed.

Once this phase of work is complete the new roundabout extension will be used as a signed access route for the on-going construction of FARRRS and the new iPort.

Further traffic management measures will be required to complete the roundabout works in late summer this year.

Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones, said: ‘This important regeneration project is progressing well and the start of the tie-in works to existing motorway network is a major construction milestone. This new link road is instrumental to my economic growth plans for the borough and those of the wider Sheffield City Region.

‘FARRRS will deliver significant levels of new investment in Doncaster by enabling major private sector developments to come to fruition. It helps maximise opportunities at our new Enterprise Zone and creates the right conditions for thousands of new jobs and homes. Doncaster and its economy are on the right track.’
