Calls for double yellow lines at Sheffield crossroads

Have your say

Lib Dem councillors in Sheffield are supporting calls from Beauchief and Greenhill residents for safer roads.

They want double yellow lines painted at the Westwick Road and Westwick Crescent crossroads in Greenhill to prevent people parking at junctions.

Councillors Simon Clement-Jones and Richard Shaw raised the concerns of local residents at last week’s meeting of the Full Council.

Coun Shaw said: “Enough is enough. Residents have been complaining about this junction for years and the council just promises reviews and investigations. Residents need and deserve a firm commitment that action will be taken.”

Roger Stevenson, of Greenhill Neighbourhood Watch, said the junction was ‘potentially a very serious accident waiting to happen’.
