Spital Junction Improvements

Works on the crossroads of the A631 Bawtry Road/Stripe Road/Blyth Road junction, more commonly known as Tickhill Spital have now started.

Initial work saw the removal of some trees at the junction to allow for the road widening on Stripe Road and the new junction position for Blyth Road. The next stage was the groundworks for the drainage and cables.

The work will make vital improvements following planning permission granted by Bassetlaw Council for a housing development by Barratt Homes on the border of Doncaster and will include the widening of the road at the junctions and 4-way traffic lights. 

Temporary lights are currently in operation and the works are expected to take around 5 months. Please be aware due to vehicles continuing to jump the red lights, cameras have now been installed and fines will be issued for anyone travelling through a red light.

Resurfacing the road and installing new street lighting to the latest standards will form part of the project.

The council have worked closely with Tickhill Town Council in conjunction with the project plans and also to agree locations where new trees will be planted. In line with the council’s tree planting policy, three times the amount of trees are being planted to replace those removed to benefit the local environment and planting began during the last planting season, with further trees due to be planted once the season resumes later in the year,  Further trees will be planted at the location when the new junction is complete.

More information will be provided as the works progress and we have updates from City of Doncaster.
