TEMPORARY traffic lights on a main road into Barnsley came into force this week and will remain until mid February as resurfacing works are carried out by Barnsley Council. 

Works will be carried out on the A633 - Barnsley Road and Wombwell Lane - between the White Rose roundabout and Screwfix/Greggs. 

The lights will be in operation between 9.30am and 3.30pm on weekdays, and 7.30am and 4pm on Sundays to minimise disruption. Temporary lights will only be in place during these times.

A spokesman for Barnsley Council said: “This is part of our ongoing maintenance programme, to improve the quality of the road surface along this route and provide a better and safer driving experience.”
