Streets Ahead work begins in two districts

Have your say

ROAD improvements start next month in two more districts of Sheffield under the £2 billion Streets Ahead scheme.

Work in the south west will focus on the busiest roads in Dore, Totley, Bradway, Greenhill, Millhouses and Lowedges, while contractors will also move in around Bradfield village and the surrounding reservoirs.

The work will start at the beginning of March in both areas and will last up to 20 weeks.

The highway works are part of Streets Ahead’s plan to transform all areas of the city within the next five years.

Improvements include resurfacing roads, improving pavements, installing energy-efficient LED streetlights, drainage improvements, and highway tree maintenance.

Coun Jack Scott, Sheffield Council cabinet member for environment, recycling and streetscene, said: “It is really exciting to see Streets Ahead starting in two more parts of the city.

“The work will transform the condition of the roads, pavements and overall street appearance, making the highways look and feel much better than before.

“We have had some really positive feedback about the work we have done elsewhere and we can’t wait to bring these benefits to even more residents.”
