Night-time lane closures are to start on the Rotherham end of the Parkway next week.

From Tuesday, October 21, there will be one lane closed in both directions on the A630 Rotherham Gateway of the Parkway during weekday nights, between 10pm and 5am.

The night-time closures are to allow for preparatory works for the scheme to repair the Old Flatts Bridge, which carries the Parkway over local railway lines.

During the £4m works, there will also be five consecutive nights of road closures on the route, starting on January 12.

The main phase of the works will begin next February and are due to be completed in November 2015.

During that time traffic will continue to run but on two narrow lanes in both directions using contraflow lanes.
