  1. They would have been better off sorting out the issues coming down from broad lane/ west bar/ the traffic lights and Penistone road gridlock. This to me is the crux of the problem - not the width of lanes. I also don’t like how they have increased the height of the Kurb ( far right lane towards parkway at the junction to Savile street ) - as it currently stands any emergency services wanting to pass through will have a problem as no one can move onto the verge. I also have an issue with the u-bend too.
  2. Both individuals and Meadowhall have to share the blame imo. We have had an excessive amount of rain in Sheffield over the course of the last month and it isn’t rocket science to work out that the rivers would burst their banks eventually. Meadowhall should have paid heed to the weather warnings which were in place 24 hours prior to the Xmas light switch on as well as keep a close eye on the flood alerts on the environment agency. Cancelling an event at 5pm is a silly and irresponsible decision given that there would be a lot of young people wanting to attend the event. At the same time - individuals have to take some responsibility too . If I hadn’t had to work a shift in the afternoon / evening on Thursday I would have stayed at home , packed a bag ( as I live in a location known for flooding) and been prepared. Going shopping would have been the last thing I would be doing. BUT at the same time - for those who live in areas where they don’t have issues with flooding then would think differently about it. What I don’t think people were prepared for was the cancellation of public transport ( although in hindsight it’s not surprising trains/ tram and buses were cancelled).
  3. Just an FYI - only one of the lanes is open again today so very high likelihood of tailbacks again - same place as last sunday ( opposite lane though). no idea - i think they just had signs up when i first created the thread but then nothing materialised. It has probably just taken them 4 years to get around to doing the works.
  4. agreed. I got stuck in the traffic whilst on the way to work. Took me 30 minutes to get from Kelham Island to just past Tesco. I had actually left the house earlier 30 minutes prior to starting work as i was expecting there to be some traffic . When i arrived it was standstill for some time. Closing one of the lanes close to the junction coming down from West Bar caused massive problems !
  5. does anyone know if the Hillsborough branch of Natwest is staying open? There had been signs to say it was closing earlier in the year which were taken down, followed by another sign to say the branch was closing in August - today i noticed that this has also been removed?
  6. I dont generally come down penistone from past the ground ( going into town)..so I’m not sure if there is another camera along that stretch of road ( before the camera closest to gym). If I remember I will go & investigate tomorrow . ?
  7. I live behind the owls ground, and travel along leppings onto Penistone - today I looked at the camera as I went past. It looks exactly like the speedspike & given it had a camera sign right above the camera - I would guess it is actually active but given it has only appeared this week then penalty notices won’t have arrived yet! I’m not sure why they have installed it where they have as that section of road is generally busy during the day especially at peak times - I guess it’s only at night when drivers will be travelling at speed. Seems a bit pointless if they are wanting to ‘slow’ traffic down ( although we all know they are cash cows). If that was the true reason for installing ( the cash cow bit) then they should have installed it further down ..
  8. alongside trivializing those who do have mental health difficulties.
  9. as above.. can anyone recommend a good shop to go to get an intimate piercing please? Willing to travel ( as have a car) thanks
  10. I am also in S6 and our internet has gone down however we are not with virgin but BT... the down detector website also stating this is a national problem so could be related to the Virgin issue? Eta - Hillsborough now - close to the weds ground
  11. just letting people know that the council are currently doing renovation work on the bridge , and they have closed the 'normal' road ( coming off park square roundabout heading towards ponds forge, and added a small "track " - in other words they used most of the payment to serve as the "track"... ) which is meant to serve as a "road". For the most part things have been fine however since lorries(wilko/B& M etc /coaches/royal mail vans also come down this route - when they have its caused massive tailbacks onto the roundabout. This work is allegedly meant to last for the next 7 weeks or so... we have also been informed that there is meant to be workmen there to direct/assist lorries 24 hours a day - whether this happens remains to be seen !
