Doncaster to receive £26m transport boost

Published: Mon, 29 Mar 2010 15:47:42

Doncaster is one step closer to benefiting from a £26.8m project to increase capacity on the A6182 White Rose Way - cutting congestion and helping regenerate the town, Transport Minister Sadiq Khan announced today (26 March 2010).

The scheme, which has received initial Government approval, will upgrade a 1.1 mile stretch of White Rose Way between Junction 13 of the M18 and Lady Bank roundabout from single to dual carriageway. 

The investment will also deliver a new road bridge over the East Coast Mainline and improved facilities for cyclists and pedestrians. This will help tackle congestion and cut journey times on this important link between the town, the motorway network and Robin Hood Airport Doncaster-Sheffield, as well as boosting regeneration.

A £24.2m contribution has been provisionally agreed by the Department for Transport with the remaining funding being provided by Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council, which is promoting the scheme.

Sadiq Khan said:

"An efficient and reliable transport system is the lifeblood of every local community. This is why we are committing significant amounts of money to improving Doncaster's infrastructure - helping boost economic growth.
