Barnsley transport plan agreed

Have your say

A multi-million pound plan to improve transport in Barnsley has been agreed.

The report includes the repair and resurfacing of over 21 miles of road, installing signals at Junction 37 of the M1 and developing a new road scheme on the A61 Birdwell roundabout - which is the second most congested road in the country according to Department of Transport statistics.

Councillors say the £15.7m transport plan - which also includes transforming the streets adjacent to Barnsley Town Hall and environmental improvements in the town centre - will help with the town’s ‘growth aspirations’.
