Have your say

Details about plans to make changes to a busy roundabout off the M1 are to be discussed at a public event next week.

An information event about proposed work to the A61 Birdwell roundabout at Junction 36 of the M1, near Barnsley, will take place on Tuesday, November 4, at Birdwell Methodist Church, Sheffield Road, between 3pm and 7pm.

The plans include creating two new roundabouts with a road to access the Dearne Valley employment sites. Also proposed is a dedicated lane from the motorway slip road on to the A61 into Barnsley.
