Bus changes are approved

Have your say

ALTERATIONS to bus priority measures in Sheffield have been approved by the council’s cabinet highways committee.

Experimental changes to the Hillsborough Corner Bus and Tram Gate were made permanent after councillors heard extra traffic passing through the junction had only slightly delayed public transport - and boosted business.

General traffic restrictions now apply only from 7am to 11am, and 3pm to 7pm.

Councillors also approved plans to axe controversial bus priority traffic lights on the A61 northbound approach to Woodseats subject to funding being allocated.

After the signals the road will be widened to two lanes northbound between Meadowhead and the Abbey Lane junction.
