ROADWORKS on the A630 Centenary Way in Rotherham have now been completed—meaning the major gateway route is now fully open to traffic after nine months of repairs.
Motorists travelling from the south side of the town now have a clear journey along the dual carriageway between Canklow and the town centre following a £4 million major maintenance scheme carried out by Rotherham Borough Council to remove the expanding materials within the highway, which had made the road a 'rollercoaster' for a number of years.
The scheme involved excavating up to a depth of four feet to ensure that all of the problem materials were removed.
This resulted in over 40,000 tonnes of material being dug out and taken for reprocessing and recycling.
New safety barriers in the central reservation were also installed as part of the works.
