  1. Inner Ring Road Improvements - Status Update Amey commenced their final surfacing programme on Monday 9th March, 2020 and this will last for a period of up to 6 weeks. The surfacing will take place on weekdays between 19:00 and 06:30 and Sundays between 07:00 and 19:00 which reflects the many restrictions that have been put in place during the construction of this project. The first half of the period will concentrate in the Northern half of the project area and generally between Chatham Street and Savile Street before then continuing within the main Corporation Street section. Subject to any delays associated with staff resources on site arising from COVID-19, and normal caveats about weather conditions being favourable, the final surfacing should be completed by the end of April, 2020. The scheme will at that point be substantially complete. I hope this assists in responding to your constituent on this matter Best regards Tom Tom Finnegan-Smith Head of Strategic Transport, Sustainability and Infrastructure City Growth Sheffield City Council
  2. Well I would say Stannington and Lodge Moor are amongst the highest areas of Sheffield. Stannington is 650 feet above sea level.
  3. And has anyone seen any gritters yet? Certainly no sign of them at Stannington this morning and the Star seem to have posted that the they haven't bothered gritting! Council seem to be inept at anything to do with transport in this city unless it involves putting in useless cycle paths in places they're not required just to meet targets! (eg the one outside Costco)
  4. Plenty of people on the Stannington Facebook page happy with them. Don't know whre you live but if you're in S6 try joing the Stannington FB page
  5. The route has stayed pretty much the same other than where Old Penistone Rd diverts past the Toyota dealer and rejoins at the traffic lights near Hillfoot Bridge and also a couple of places towards Shalesmoor where you can see bits of the old road. It's basically the buildings that have changed and obviously the dual carriageway
  6. There's a post somewhere that a planning application has been submitted for a natural burial ground on High Riggs so not the Quaker burial ground but somewhere nearby.
  7. I may have to start using the Nunnery Square Park and Ride and just wondering if there is an exit onto Derek Dooley Way or do you have to come out onto Parkway in front of the Knowhow building.
  8. It was a leak from a generator that caused it and the company had engineers out the same day
  9. 1 They have not kept the same number of lanes open. As in my original post they have removed one of the filter lanes in either direction towards Saville street that has caused queuing traffic to impact both ways. Oh and you obviously don't use that route at busy times or you would have encountered the impact it has had. 2 Yes there will be a timescale and an impact but it has currently come to a halt and it is not a short timescale 3 In the great scheme of things this isn't that big a scheme Additionally it appears to have been very poorly thought out with the "U" turn for buses at the new traffic signals as they have great difficulty managing the turning circle.
  10. There's a plan shown on Sheffield council website somewhere (detailed on a previous thread) but I couldn't really make head or tail of what they're trying to achieve. What really is frustrating is they have ripped the road up on the filter towards Attercliffe and it looks like they're installing a cycle lane that will reduce the filter to one lane thus causing tailbacks at busy times. This has also meant they have reduced the filter on the opposite carriageway to one lane that causes tailbacks in the other direction and causes traffic to back up to Parkway every night. They are supposed to be trying to reduce pollution but by slowing everything down they are undoubtedly causing more pollution.
  11. Anyone else totally fed up with the lack of progress on these now. They seem to have gone on for ever and they now seem to have come to a halt. Add to that the ridiculous decision to cut the filters (both ways) towards Saville St and the stupid u turn traffic light it's total chaos. The roads themselves are in a right state with very poor lane markings, some new ones but they've left the old ones in place. New year rant over
  12. Flood warning for Meadowhall and Carrbrook https://flood-warning-information.service.gov.uk/target-area/123FWF629 Do they not remember 2007?
  13. Have you ever tried ringing the council and getting through to the correct department? I did know you check this forum and hoped you might pick it up, thanks for the response. Morning run to work was back to normal this morning
  14. What is so galling is that until he actually resigns or waits for the next election nobody not even parliament can do anything about it (or even appear to want to do anything about it). In the meantime the Hallam constituents continue to suffer and be unrepresented
  15. It appears the powers that be have been playing with the traffic signal timings again (or they've brought their children to work since the holidays have started and let them loose!) Anyway at about 7-15am I travel to work along Penistone Rd into town and although it could be busy it's now stupid at the junction with Albert Terrace Road and Rutland Rd. Traffic used to be halted on Penistone Rd at Albert terrace Rd leaving traffic coming out of Albert Terrace Rd and turning right a free run up to the red light at Rutland Rd before changing to green and allowing traffic to proceed and it all worked pretty well. What happens now is Rutland Rd changes to red and allows traffic on Penistone Rd to back up to Albert Terrace Rd before the lights there on Penistone Rd change to red and Albert Terrace Rd gets a green. Traffic from Albert Terrace can't then get across without stopping in the yellow box junction and causes a backlog on Penistone Rd and plenty of frayed tempers. On my way home at around 4pm I also travel down Parkway and onto Derek Dooley Way where they've been playing with the lights at the Wicker as well causing traffic to back up to Parkway where it used to be generally clear. Anyway moan over
  16. Can anyone recommend a Nissan specialist in Sheffield (not Bristol St motors)?
  17. Quick Google search shows up William Rowland 9 -13 Meadow St, Sheffield S3 7BL
  18. Yes but he's correct. For instance Penistone Rd dual carriageway has a 30 limit. Can anyone define "Normal Road"?
  19. Slavery "a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them" These are volunteers, giving up their own time in order to benefit others. If it were not for these people the library would close and the village would lose a marvellous resource. These volunteers are in no way taking the places of people or taking the place of paid employment.
  20. Does anyone know if Morrisons Hillsborough have got Christmas wreaths in this year? If not where can I get some around Hillsborough/Crookes
  21. Does anyone know if this rescue is still running or not. My wife was hoping to make a donation for Christmas.
