New Housing will Increase Traffic by 20-25% in Dinnington and Anston!

Rotherham Council have predicted that their plans for Dinnington and Anston will see traffic volumes in our area rise by 20-25% over the next 15 years. This compares to 14% nationally and 8% in the rest of rural Rotherham.

Journey times in some cases could double as 1500 new houses are built and over 15% of new industrial land is built on our greenbelt, all without improvement to the road system.

1. The new A57 route will have to be compromised to allow access to a huge new industrial estate.

2. Swinston Hill will have to be altered to provide road access to approx 160 new homes.

3. Wentworth Way converted to the through road to service 80 new homes.

4. Oldcotes Road and Monksbridge are will need alteration as Throapham doubles in size.

5. South Anston crossroads will require alteration to allow new volumes of traffic from Dinnington to access the A57.

Massive New Industrial Estate to be Build Near Todwick

One of the more surprising elements of Rotherham Council’s Local Plan, this development would see a huge amount of local green belt beside the new A57 roundabout converted to an industrial site almost as big as Todwick itself.

Have your say on the consultation here.
