2020 Roads programme continues

At last year’s local elections, we promised to continue increased investment in Rotherham’s roads. At the council’s budget in March, Labour councillors backed a further £10 miliion of capital investment over the next three years.

You can already see the impact in our area of the additional money spent in the last couple of years: resurfacing of the Crescent East and West estate at Sunnyside, Blackthorn Avenue and Flanderwell Avenue at Bramley, Greenwood Crescent and Warren Road in Wickersley, as well as the one way stretch through the middle of Bramley.

At the moment there is more resurfacing work taking place in Bramley, on Belvedere Parade, Balmoral Way, Holyrood Rise and Harewood Grove (pictured above recently). Further works in our area are planned for later this financial year.

We appreciate your patience during any inconvenience caused but hope that residents will benefit from this investment in a local priority.

Brook Lane crossing proposal

Residents may be aware that we have been campaigning for some time to secure improved pedestrian crossing facilities on Brook Lane at Bramley. Residents in the Gaunt Road area in particular had told us that they were worried about crossing this busy stretch of road as traffic heads to and from the ‘Elton’ roundabout. We are pleased therefore that after some consideration the council has brought forward a proposal for a new pedestrian refuge. We’ve copied the detail of the plan above (click on the image for a larger version).

Raising awareness of suicide prevention

Through our local Area Assembly, Wickersley ward councillors have been supporting the “Don’t let silence kill you” campaign over the last few months. The campaign aims to encourage people to speak out and seek help when they need it, and to be more confident in supporting others. Towards the end of last year, through the Area Assembly we organised a training event for people who may come into contact with people needing mental health “first aid”.

Do you love where you live?

We were out in Bramley recently with a number of volunteers, cleaning litter along Bawtry Road for our Bramley Big Spring Clean.

The day was one of dozens across the Rotherham borough as people joined in with the Great British Spring Clean. If you’re able to spare an hour every now and again to help keep our area looking its best, or you would like to organise your own litter pick, you can join the council’s Love Where You Live team.
