I am disappointed to have been informed by the Transport Minister that Rotherham Borough Council and Sheffield City Council have been unable to come to an agreement regarding the Compulsory Purchase Order of land required for the proposed route of the Waverley Link Road.

As a result the Department for Transport do not have sufficient confidence that the scheme can be delivered and therefore cannot agree to provide funding for it. Due to a proposed move to a devolved system of major scheme funding, where decisions on scheme prioritisation will be taken locally, Rotherham Borough Council will have to decide whether they wish the scheme to be considered for major funding in the future.
