TEMPORARY speed restrictions will be put in place on three Thurgoland roads for approximately eight weeks.

The 30mph restrictions will come into place on Monday February 25 to allow Barnsley Council to safely apply road markings and change road signs.

A limit will be introduced on the A629 Halifax Road, between Thurgoland and Wortley, on Rag Lane, from Copster Lane to Roper Lane, and on Thurgoland Bank, from Roper House Lane to Sheffield Lane.
