SHEFFIELD is the 10th most dreaded destination for motorists, according to a survey.

Out of 3,000 drivers polled, four per cent nominated Sheffield, with concerns highlighted including confusing road systems, jams and one way systems.

Areas which have caused concern for motorists in the city during recent years include the A61 Chesterfield Road at Woodseats where a £4 million ‘improvement’ scheme led to huge jams, and The Wicker, where drivers were confused by a new road layout and bus gate.

Some motorists told interviewers they would even try to avoid driving to their dreaded destination, by telling friends they couldn’t afford petrol or the car had broken down.
