Dunsville residents are celebrating a victory, thanks to a new £180,000 traffic light scheme agreed between Doncaster MBC and Sheffield City Region.
Doncaster has now agreed to install new traffic lights at the junction of the A18 High Street and St Marys Road, Dunsville.
Rossington should benefit from £57.5million NHS investment in Doncaster’s primary care says Don Valley MP Caroline Flint.
“This is the first real investment in primary care in a decade,” says Caroline “I hope Rossington is one of the gainers from this investment. Rossington is a good example of a village that needs new GP premises. Rossington is a large outlying community that is still growing.”

Caroline Flint, MP for Don Valley, has expressed concern at the Government’s mismanagement of the sale of publicly-owned land, as a new report into this issue is released by the Public Accounts Committee.
The Committee’s report shows the Government to have fallen badly short of its target to sell enough land for 160,000 new homes by 2020, with the need for affordable homes including social homes for rent having been neglected.
Caroline Flint met Unite the Union Reps in Parliament this week, to support their Brexit No Deal No Way meeting.
At a packed meeting in Parliament, several MPs met lay members of the union from across a range of manufacturing sectors, including those from major car companies Jaguar and Toyota.
Don Valley MP Caroline Flint has offered beer and sandwiches to the Government’s Steel Support Group as she welcomed vital industry talks taking place in Doncaster to seek a buyer for British Steel, owners of the Scunthorpe steelworks.
During an urgent question in the Commons, the MP asked when further talks would begin with the whole steel industry and unions to establish a Sector deal for the UK steel industry.
The MP challenged Business Secretary Greg Clark over whether there were any barriers to opening talks aimed at securing a sector deal - an industry-wide investment and development plan for steel which would seek to place the UK steel industry on a level playing field with its European rivals.

Caroline Flint joined volunteers from the Warmsworth WI keeping out of the mid-day sun, at this year's Warmsworth Gala.
The MP checked out the coffee and cake before handing out prizes in the raffle.
Said Caroline: "Warmsworth Gala is always an absolute pleasure and the weather always seems to bless this event. The WI produce wonderful refreshments and help to make this event the success it is."
Caroline Flint has welcomed the launch of the Auckley, Blaxton, Branton and Finningley Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP) this week.
The Don Valley MP spoke at the launch of the community initiative.
The partnership was introduced after concerns were raised with police about levels of nuisance behaviour in Auckley, Blaxton, Branton and Finnningley. A residents' survey revealed that two thirds of respondents were concerned about alcohol related litter, young people under 18 drinking in public and hanging around shops asking people to buy drink for them.
