‘TRAFFIC chaos’ outside the borough’s largest school will be discussed by councillors next week.

The current phase of works on Dodworth Road, part of the multi-million pound gyratory scheme which has encroached into the grounds of Horizon Community College, was expected to be completed ahead of students’ return earlier this month.

Tailbacks have occurred at the crossroads and, according to documents, the scheme will be brought up at Thursday’s full council meeting.

Dodworth ward’s Coun Peter Fielding said: “I have grave concerns for the safety of students as the traffic’s been chaotic.

“The increased costs of the Dodworth Road improvement scheme - £7.448m - was approved at cabinet in October last year.

“Is it now likely that the scheme will be completed within this increased budget as a result of the delays?”
