A ROAD near the town centre has been partially closed while road works are carried out.

Yesterday (December 1) a water pipe burst on the corner of Sheffield Road and Taylor Row which sent a significant amount of water into the road.

The road has been partially closed today while repairs are completed.

The road closure is now a one-way closure which allows traffic to travel from Sheffield Road towards Doncaster Road only.

The footpath is also closed on one side whist the repairs continue.

Yorkshire Water are expected to complete the works today.
