A meeting of Sheffield City Council’s finance committee next Tuesday (April 26) is being recommended to accept proposals for 20mph limits in the Earl Marshall, Greenland and High Green areas.

The council aims to have a 20mph speed limit in place for all residential areas of the city by 2025.

Advisory 20mph limits are also being proposed for roads surrounding seven city schools during times when students are arriving and leaving for the day.

The committee is being asked to approve a budget increase of £70,500 to a total of £83,500 to design the 20mph works in the Earl Marshall area, to cover the cost of a detailed design.

The budget for High Green will be cut by £30,000 to £90,000 and the budget for works in Greenland, near Darnall, will be increased by £69,500 to £82,500.

The project to bring in part-time advisory 20mph speed limits outside schools is part of a pilot scheme targeting different types of schools and locations.

The schools list is:

  • Bradfield Secondary School;
  • Lound Junior School;
  • Chaucer Secondary School;
  • Bradfield Dungworth Primary School;
  • Lydgate Junior School (also covers Tapton and King Edwards);
  • Intake Primary School;
  • Wharncliffe Side Primary School.

The committee is being asked to approve a budget increase of £51,040 to a total of £127,478 to move to the delivery stage.

The report says: “The cost of client project management and Amey design fees were underestimated. The scheme has required significantly more client time spent on project management and consultation than anticipated.
