A CONTROVERSIAL one-way road system’s creation is expected to pick up pace in the coming months - after rumours the project had been shelved were quickly quashed.
The scheme, which cuts through Penny Pie Park in the Dodworth ward, has had ‘no workers’ on the site in the last month according to campaigners but the Chronicle can reveal Barnsley Council are concluding the award of the main works contract.
A spokesman said: “Ground preparation works - which is the injection of grouting into voids in the ground - have completed so there is a strong enough platform to hold the road and traffic.
“The council are currently concluding the procurement and award of the main works contract and further updates will be provided once the contract has been awarded.”
