Bus corridor improvements

Have your say

One of the key bus routes into Barnsley has been upgraded to improve journey times for motorists and public transport users.

More than 4,500 bus journeys are made every day along the route, from Stairfoot to Alhambra roundabout.

The changes are the first part of the A635 Barnsley to Doncaster Smart Route, a scheme aimed at upgrading the link between the two towns by relieving congestion.

Improvements include opening a central bus priority lane and widening lanes at Stairfoot roundabout, a new Grange Lane to Doncaster Road link road allowing traffic travelling east towards Ardsley and beyond to avoid the roundabout, new traffic signals around Alhambra roundabout to improve the flow of traffic, better bus stops, and real-time information displays.
