A61 Westwood roundabout and A628 Woodhead Pass
Improvements at Westwood roundabout (A61/A616) at Tankersley and technology improvements along the A628 Woodhead Pass
We’ll be reducing congestion and improving the flow of traffic for drivers through Westwood roundabout in Tankersley, Sheffield. This will also reduce congestion and improving the reliability of peoples journeys between the Manchester and Sheffield city regions.
Our improvements along the A628 will also help to improve safety for drivers and allow them to make more effective decisions through the use of electronic message signs.
By adding an extra lane on the roundabout and some of the approaches of Westwood roundabout we’ll be able to reduce congestion and improve journey time reliability. Traffic lights will also be added to all the approaches apart from Maple Road.
We’ll also be installing technology, such as electronic information boards, on the A628 which will allow drivers to make more effective decisions about their journeys and improve journey time reliability.
This scheme is part of a wider package of work that will improve the existing route connecting the M67 at Mottram in Longdendale to the M1, north of Sheffield. Please see our A57/A628 Trans-Pennine upgrade scheme to see what else we are doing along this route.
