Er, no. 'The power' conferred by law comes from the Local Government Acts- hence from Parliament and the Crown.

What I meant was that the Electorate, chose those who make the decisions on our behalf, in accordance to the Acts and laws, to represent and operate our local government.

Sheffield is no different to any other city or town of any size when it comes to use of traffic management measures.

 

The days when drivers had unrestricted access to all streets are long gone and aren’t coming back. Many of the streets you’re talking about were designed and built a long time ago, when traffic levels were much lower. A lot of them were built when horses and carts were the only vehicles around.

 

Paying your “road tax” doesn’t confer any right of access, it just entitles you not to be prosecuted for not paying it.

Sheffield is very different to many cities in the UK with its stupid flat one level plan thats stops all traffic movement at some point.
Cities that have flyover inner circular roads flow much better and underpasses where main roads cross paths. 
Narrow bridges concentrate traffic to single lanes which are fed by two full lanes on the dual carriageway traffic.
Speed is controllable and needs to be done well in advance of the bottleneck like the parkway which should have average speed cameras along the entire length.
Drivers take too many risks with speed and space and are part of the 3 trillion pound problem of road accidents.

Which neighbourhoods to you propose to destroy to build these?

 

Can only think of a couple of sections of road in Manchester or Leeds that have these. And traffic stops when these come to an end, and often tails back on them.

For decades, cities have been recognising that underpasses and flyovers represent significant barriers to PEOPLE and have been removing them to make their cities more safe, accessible and welcoming.

Except for train stations and large roundabouts where they build underpasses and flyovers for people.
