Work starts on road under M1 viaduct

Transport Minister Baroness Kramer was yesterday (Wed) due to officially launch construction of a road between Meadowhall and Tinsley - under the M1 viaduct and bypassing the roundabouts.

It will be part a £30m fast link for buses between Sheffield and Rotherham town centres, designed to help open up land for development and jobs. At the same time, the new road will be open to all traffic.

Funding has come from the Government and Europe.
