Highways schemes set for approval

Have your say

MORE than £30,000 of road improvements for parts of Sheffield are set to be approved by councillors this week.

The South East Community Assembly has been recommended to give the green light to seven schemes.

Some £11,000 is to be spent on two flashing signs to remind drivers of their speed, £5,000 on a scheme to provide time-limited parking on Mosborough High Street and £4,000 on safety improvements on Donetsk Way, Crystal Peaks, where the road is shared with trams.

Also set for approval are separate £3,000 projects for maintenance and repair of existing speed indicator signs, to introduce restrictions around a bus turning circle outside Athelstan School, Richmond, plus feasibility studies into a one-way scheme on Skelton Lane, Woodhouse, and a 20mph zone in Charnock.

The meeting of the assembly is at Scowerdons Community Centre, Wickfield Grove, Hackenthorpe, from 1.30pm on Thursday.

South West Community Assembly meets the same day at Wesley Hall Methodist Church, Crookes, from 7pm.

Items on its agenda include progress reports on re-routing heavy goods vehicles away from B roads through residential areas such as Abbey Lane when travelling into the city from the Peak District, and creation of 20mph zones.

Members of the public are invited to both meetings where they can pose questions to councillors.

People can also raise issues in advance.
