  1. This looks like good news, will be great to see an old building brought back into use instead of reduced to rubble and replaced with some modern cheap monstrosity as has happened to many others.
  2. For the length of time that the junction has been like it is, it is amazing then that many further accidents have not occurred. The junction has been closed for nearly a week now (it would seem it has now been fully opened(?)) and I am absolutely mystified why it takes so much time to re-set the sequencing of the lights, if that is all that has been done. Resequencing of the lights should take no more than a day for a competent programmer but perhaps that is the problem there are no competent programmers available (or as they now like to be called software engineers (or has it changed again?)). It is to be hoped that drivers now understand that red means stop,
  3. Changing traffic sequences does not require one side of the road to be closed. If that was the case then why is only the out of town route closed but the into town route open?
  4. Travel South Yorkshire are reporting that the 52 and 52a are diverting "via Attercliffe Road, Attercliffe Common, Broughton Lane and Greenland Road before resuming normal route on Handsworth Road". Why is only one of the services diverting onto Britannia Road, then onto Main Road to access the bus stop at Weldricks Pharmacy/Wilco? How do the busses get from Greenland Road to Handsworth Road? Do they teleport up the hill, which is Main Road, to connect with the start of Handsworth Road (at the bridge)? Of more importance, why is it taking so long to sort the problem at the junction of Woodbourn Road and Staniforth Road? It is absolute incompetence !!!
  5. Why does that require the road to be closed?

    Parking on pavements

    Entirely agree. I have highlighted your point about money because near here parts of the footpaths were patched up on the Friday and then the same footpaths were dug up on the following Monday. If that is not a waste of money, I don't know what is.

    Road resurfacing

    Doing the footpaths round here. On Friday some nice men arrived and proceeded to patch numerous areas of the paths that have needed doing for about 18 months. On being asked they replied they were repairing 'trip hazards'. The following Monday the same footpaths were all ripped up with new hardcore and tops put down. Thought the powers that be were pleading lack of funds

    Congestion charge in Sheffield

    One big problem is caused by the badly synchronised traffic lights. Of course this doesn't apply to most buses as they completely ignore what colour the lights are and blast through regardless. Notice that nothing is mentioned about the heavily polluting trains, some of which sit for long hours of the day with engines running but going nowhere.

    Taxi knowledge test sheffield

    I've mentioned on previous threads about taxi driver not knowing where Sheffield Midland Station was - from ASDA at Handsworth!

    Tram Trains thread

    Do they actually 're-profile' the wheels which, as I understand, means effectively turning (or grinding) metal from the wheel to change its shape or do the remove the wheels/axles and replace them with those with the required profile? I am sure I read somewhere that the tram-trains (with train type profile) could only run on restricted parts of the tram network from Cathedral (possibly to Shalesmoor?) to Meadowhall South and then onto the rail network.

    More interesting driving

    This clip has the number plate of the Discovery and the BMW blanked out but the same footage is available with both number plates clearly visible. Think it safe to say to give that nice intelligent driver of the Discovery a very wide berth if you are unfortunate enough to come across them on the road

    Greenhill main road junction

    Have they designed this as a split crossing then? I use this junction at least once per week and was not aware of this. It is perhaps only good luck I have not re-designed my car there. However I tend not to rely on traffic lights, more what the traffic is doing. Must wholeheartedly agree with smithy and bassett but then what can one expect when Sheffield traffic designers are involved.

    Cooling towers NE from Sheffield

    You can actually see quite a bit further on a clear night

    Cooling towers NE from Sheffield

    That is evidence of the heavy air pollution in that area obscuring the view
