LONG-AWAITED work to build a new supermarket on the edge of Barnsley town centre is expected to pick up early next year.
 
Retailer Aldi received permission to build a store next to Wickes on Old Mill Lane – on the former National Grid site – more than two years ago.
 
Delays have snagged the build but a planning document said groundworks have been carried out and this week it was confirmed that a construction plan has been finalised, identifying Old Tannery Road as the site’s main access.
