Street closures and bus diversions planned for Sheffield neighbourhood due to road works

Road works will start in a busy Sheffield neighbourhood at the end of June.

Monday, 21st June 2021, 4:45 pm

Streets Ahead will shortly begin essential work in Hillsborough, resurfacing Holme Lane and Loxley New Road, from Tuesday, June 29 to Friday, July 9.

The work will take place at night between 7pm and midnight, to avoid disrupting traffic and pedestrians as much as possible, but residents are being warned there will be some noise at the start of the scheme.

The one-way system and road closures on Stannington Road will divert traffic along Hollins Lane through to Rivelin Valley Road.

Bus services will be replaced by a temporary shuttle bus service, 981 and 982, which will run between Hillsborough Interchange and Stannington every 30 minutes, Monday to Friday until the work has finished.

Malin Bridge Park and Ride on Holme Lane will not be accessible during the road closures. Motorists should remove their vehicles no later than 7pm each evening whilst the work takes place. Supertram services are not affected.

Peter Hancock, operations manager at Streets Ahead, said: ““The location of this work is not easy and being in a busy residential area such as this means that there will be some disruption.

“Unfortunately, there will be some noise, especially in the early stages when we are removing the old road surface.

“There will also be road closures in place but only when absolutely necessary to keep our workforce safe, and we urge all motorists to follow the diversions until our work has been completed.”
