Dreadful weather has delayed road improvement works on the M180 near Doncaster which were due to start this week.

The contract start has been pushed back to later this month when resurfacing, road markings and road studs work will take place overnight on a 6mile section of the east and westbound carriageways between Junction 1 and 3 near the River Torne.

There will be various overnight carriageway and slip road closures between 28 June and 6 July and the M180 Junction 2 eastbound entry and exit slip road will be closed from 8pm on Friday 29 June until 6am on Wednesday 4 July.

Highways Agency project manager, Steven Wright, said: “This work is necessary to replace the worn out surface as part of our routine maintenance to ensure road users can continue to enjoy safe, smooth and reliable journeys.

“Safety is our top priority and for the safety of road users and roadworkers we encourage all drivers to drive carefully past the works and along the diversion routes, keeping within the speed limit, and concentrating on the road ahead.”
