Parkgate Link Road, Park & Ride and Taylors Lane Roundabout Scheme – Public Consultation 15 March to 16 April 2021

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) would like to hear your thoughts about our proposals to ease congestion and improve transport, walking and cycling infrastructure at Parkgate in Rotherham. The consultation runs from Monday 15 March to Friday 16 April 2021.

The Parkgate Link Road, Park & Ride and Taylors Lane Proposals

The proposed scheme comprises of a new link road, footway and cycleway between A6123 Aldwarke Lane, Stonerow Way and Stadium Way, highway improvements at Taylors Lane roundabout, and a new 300 space Park & Ride facility near the Parkgate Tram Train terminus.  

The proposed scheme will be broken down into two phases to be delivered as follows:

Phase 1: Parkgate Link Road/Parkgate Tram Train Park & Ride

Building a new 800m link road, footway and cycleway from Stadium Way to Aldwarke Lane, with a roundabout tie in at Aldwarke Lane. A new 300 space Park & Ride facility for the Tram Train terminus at Parkgate Shopping, served by the new link road, will be delivered as part of this works contract.

Phase 2: Taylors Lane roundabout

Complementary to the link road, widening the entry and exit on the A633 southern arm of Taylors Lane roundabout, extending the 2-lane sections by 150m in both directions.

These interventions will benefit the environment and people living, working in and visiting the area, by:

  • Helping to ease congestion, which will enable employees to access employment and speed up the delivery of goods on our roads. 
  • Improving connectivity, which will widen the labour pool available to employers.
  • Making public transport a better option for those travelling in the area by improving bus reliability and journey times, and access to the Tram Train network between Parkgate, Rotherham and Sheffield.
  • Providing greater access to economic growth through unlocking land redevelopment opportunities.
  • Improving traffic flows and reducing carbon emissions, improving air quality.
  • Encouraging active travel by making it easier to walk and cycle in the area via improved infrastructure.
  • Bringing about improved public realm, health and wellbeing.

The Parkgate Link Road, Park & Ride and Taylors Lane scheme is being worked up in partnership between Rotherham Council, SYPTE and Sheffield City Region (SCR).  It is one of several proposed schemes which form part of SCR’s wider £166 million Transforming Cities Fund (TCF).

Have your say on the Parkgate Link Road, Park & Ride and Taylors Lane proposals

SYPTE is undertaking a public consultation from Monday 15 March – Friday 16 April 2021 to seek views on the proposals.  This consultation will help to shape a full planning application which will be submitted to Rotherham Council.
