A630 Sheffield (Subsidence)

Volume 450: debated on Monday 16 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when (a) the subsidence on the A630 between Sheffield and the M1 motorway will be rectified and (b) the road will be resurfaced. (92917)

Sections of the A630 Sheffield Parkway and A57 Mosborough Parkway have been affected by expansion of the material used to construct the sub-base layers of the road. This has produced surface deformation and characteristics not dissimilar to those caused by subsidence.

The Department has provided an additional £4.3 million to Sheffield city council for remedial work on both sections of road. Works on the A57 Mosborough Parkway are complete and works on the A630 Sheffield Parkway are due to start in the summer of 2007. The works involve removing the affected material and a total reconstruction of the carriageway, which will of course include resurfacing.
