So on both occasions I have driven to Crystal Peaks this week via Moss Way I have had to stop on the roundabout (Moss Way/Donetsk Way) due to traffic waiting at the temporary traffic lights for the Asda entrance roadworks backing up to the roundabout.

I imagine there will have to be some permanent traffic lights for this entrance when the store is open, plus I understand there is going to be a least one pedestrian crossing. Just hope this roundabout chaos won't be a permanent feature.

Temporary lights are never timed very well because they can cover some distance, but I would imagine that from 4:30 to 6 it will be a logjam. It seems madness to me that they downgraded the entrance from a roundabout to lights. Time will tell.

Looks like the new Asda at Moss Way is taking shape, the one behind Drake House Retail Park.

But a long time ago I heard there was also plans for an Asda filling station as well, is this still going ahead?

I would think the council would have their work cut out redoing the road network so people aint stuck behind jams every day.

Recruiting now!

Update: Ok, I was going by the huge banner outside the site but trying to search on the Adsa website brings up nothing. Odd.

I thought I was with it, then they changed what it was. Now what I'm with isn't it, and what's it seems weird and scary to me. It will happen to you.

Condisering it is 10 pages long, you can't blame him/her for not bothering to read the thread.

Asda has now removed the store opening date from the link.

Awful shame there won't be a petrol station on this site.
But I am glad that Asda will be opening on our side of Sheffield.

Awful shame there's going to be an asda, full stop. Traffic round here is going to be a complete nightmare.

Have they got rid of the plans for the petrol station? They were in the original plan.

Because Asda handsworth and manor top are too far away?

5 and a half mile - to either one of the 2 for me- journey, or a half a mile journey? It's definitely more beneficial. Also, the manor top one isn't worth going to.

I prefer Asda to the other supermarkets, but end up at Morrisons as it is more convenient from Sothall.

So to answer you question, yes they are too far away for a local shop.

What's true ? The Asda store, or a petrol station ? We already knew about the store btw.
