New £3.44 million active travel scheme set to be approved by South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority

The South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) is set to approve a grant to create active travel routes in Balby.

£3.44 million for the scheme will be awarded to Doncaster Council from the Transforming Cities Fund Grant, funding that was granted to the SYMCA from central government.

The scheme aims to make active travel such as walking and cycling a viable alternative to driving across South Yorkshire.

8.7km of new or improved cycling and walking routes will be constructed including ‘quiet streets’ routes in lesser traveled areas.

These include A60 cycle routes through Wadworth Hill and Sandford Road.

Connectivity to Wadworth and Warmsworth will also be improved with several routes both on and off-road.

Improved cycling provision will also be provided as part of the scheme, with key employment sites able to store 40 bicycles.
