Great Yorkshire Way

Providing a direct connection between Doncaster Sheffield Airport, the iPort Doncaster ‘inland port’ and the UK’s motorway network, the Great Yorkshire Way is a major catalyst for the further development of Doncaster as one of the UK’s leading logistics hubs.

The Great Yorkshire Way has:

  • Linked Doncaster Sheffield Airport and the iPort Doncaster inland port directly to the UK’s motorway network at Junction 3 of the M18.
  • Established sites on the route, including Robin Hood Airport Business Park and iPort Doncaster as prime locations for logistics and distribution companies.
  • Reduced journey times significantly, for both freight and passengers, between Doncaster Sheffield’s Airport’s catchment area and the airport, including a drive time of only 25 minutes to the centre of Sheffield – England’s fourth largest city.
  • Connected Doncaster Sheffield Airport with Doncaster International Railport and iPort Doncaster, creating a truly integrated multimodal freight proposition for logistics, warehousing and distribution companies.
  • Stimulated the on-going growth and development of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, to establish it firmly as the primary airport for Sheffield City Region and the surrounding area.

“The direct motorway link cut journey times and opened up a bigger catchment area. The road has resulted in…more destinations, more business links and overall a stronger economy”.

Michael Cawley, Deputy CEO, Ryanair.

Have your say on ambitious region-wide transport plans

4 January 2018

Consultation on the future of transport across the Sheffield City Region (SCR) is set to go live next Monday, 8 January.

An online questionnaire, running until the end of March, will give people across the region the chance to have their say on the SCR’s ambitious draft Transport Strategy. The strategy aims to grow the regional economy by £500million, boosting economic growth by making it easier for people, particularly those in the most deprived areas, to get to work or places of education.
