Doncaster Airport motorway link

A major link road, which will cut journey times to the UK’s fastest growing airport and help to create thousands of new jobs and homes in Doncaster, was officially opened last Monday (29 February) as Great Yorkshire Way. Please also see AND FINALLY
Planning for the link from the south of Doncaster to Junction 3 of the M18 started over a decade ago as part of the Finningley and Rossington Regeneration Route Scheme.  The three-mile long section has been named to acknowledge its prominence as a prime gateway into Yorkshire and to reflect its importance as a catalyst for transforming the regional economy.
The road will significantly reduce journey times to Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield, bringing an extra one million potential passengers to within a 60-minute drive.
This innovative scheme, project managed by Doncaster Council, has been delivered by a unique team made from the public and private sectors. The partnership between Doncaster Council, Peel Group, Verdion and Harworth Estates plus Mott MacDonald’s design and Carillion’s construction expertise made this £56m road a reality.
The Peel Group, Verdion and Harworth Estates contributed £34m to the scheme to add to £18m of Regional Growth Funding with the balance met by the Council.   www.robinhoodairport.com
