II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The scheme will include the construction of approximately 4.4 km of new highway across low lying open farm land to the north of Rossington and will connect Junction 3 of the M18 motorway with the existing junction of the A638 Great North Road and B6463 Sheep Bridge Lane, known locally as Parrot's Corner. The risk of flooding means that most of the scheme will need to be raised on an embankment above existing ground levels requiring approximately 700 000 m3 of fill material. Junction 3 currently operates as a three armed grade separated roundabout with a connection to the existing A6182 White Rose Way north of the M18 and the scheme will create a new fourth arm to the south of the M18. It may also be necessary to carry out works to widen the westbound on and off slip roads. From Junction 3 the scheme will be constructed to dual carriageway standard for a distance of approximately 1.5km to a new four armed roundabout north west of Rossington. The remaining 2.8km to Parrot's Corner will be single carriageway. The scheme will also include a new 1km single carriageway link from the roundabout at Rossington over the River Torne and through the site of the former Rossington Colliery to West End Lane, at the former colliery entrance. The reclamation and redevelopment of that site is due to start in early 2012 and includes the recovery of coal from the colliery spoil tips. The scheme does not include those works, but subject to suitability, the by-product of coal recovery process could provide a potential source of fill material. The whole of the dual carriageway section will be in close proximity to the southern boundary of the M18 and will include a new crossing over the Brancliffe to Kirk Sandall railway line (BKS). The single carriageway section will also follow the M18 until the motorway deviates away to the north east and at a point where the scheme will cross over the East Coast Main Line (ECML). The River Torne follows a parallel course to the south of the scheme along this section. After crossing the ECML the single carriageway section of the scheme will pass through the shallow valley of the Torne south of Doncaster Golf Course, twice crossing over a drainage channel known as the Mother Drain and then crossing over the Torne before connecting to the A638 at grade at Parrot's Corner. The existing signal controlled junction at Parrot's Corner will be replaced. The scheme will also include the construction of two subways to maintain public and private means of access for vehicles and pedestrians, a number of ditch and flood relief culverts and a drainage system that will include a number of attenuation ponds to control discharges into the local watercourses.
