Work on 19 new Neighbourhood Road Safety schemes across Rotherham has been approved by the Council’s Cabinet.
A variety of safety measures were agreed, and in our area the projects being progressed are:
- Addison Road: Portable Vehicle Activated Sign and footway link / footway improvement to shops
- A631 Bawtry Road: Signing and / or lining improvements to address motorists going against the one-way system from Travellers Inn to Bentley Road
- A631 Tickhill Road: Signing and lining improvements
- Sycamore Avenue: Signage warning drivers of a school ahead – road markings and tactile surface.
- Fleming Way: School ahead warning signage in addition to measures introduced
These will be the second set of projects funded by the Council’s £450,000 Neighbourhood Road Safety Scheme programme, a three year capital scheme to provide smaller scale road safety improvements in areas identified by the public.
The projects were put forward for funding from the Neighbourhood Road Safety Scheme by councillors on behalf of their local communities during a six month consultation earlier this year. All were assessed against a criteria including environmental impact, regeneration, mode of travel (eg walking or cycling), social disadvantage, safety and maintaining infrastructure.
