Road to close for four nights

Have your say

THE A628 Dodworth Road in Barnsley will be closed to traffic for four nights for the completion of roadworks linked to the new Horizon Community College.

It will be closed from Town End roundabout to Pogmoor Road between 8pm and 6am from Monday, March 19, to 19 to Thursday, March 22, but will be open as normal at all other times.

A signed diversion route will take traffic via Westway, Sheffield Road, Park Road and Broadway.

The scheme is part of a traffic management for Horizon Community College at the former SR Gent site, which will open in September.

Highways engineers will use the closures to install a right-turn lane and a central island for pedestrians on Dodworth Road between the junctions with Pogmoor Road and St Hilda Avenue.
