FUNDING of almost £200,000 will go towards railway station improvements - with the aim of moving people away from private cars to public transport and active travel.
The grant from the Sheffield City Region, part of the government’s Transforming Cities Fund (TCF), has been released after an outline business case was approved at a meeting of South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive board on October 21.
More than £13m has been awarded to Barnsley as part of the TCF programme, for active travel programmes on key routes and improvements to stations.
The £197,000 released for the latter will be put towards ‘full business cases and detailed design’, according to a council report.
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
