Road closed for building work

Have your say

BUILDING work is set to cause traffic disruption in Barnsley.

From January 1 next year, part of Saville Lane in the village of Thurlstone will be shut to vehicles. The closure stretches from Manchester Road to outside Church House.

The closure has been organised to allow Sheffield-based contractors JF Finnegan Ltd to construct a new development.

Work is expected to last around eight months and the closure will be in place throughout that time.

An alternative route will be available to motorists via the access road to the James Durrans site off Manchester Road.
