Sheffield Council contractor Amey chose not to carry out the works on Sunday, August 18 – the day Sheffield United hosted their first Premier League game in 12 years.

Melissa Wise, operational director at Streets Ahead, said: “We are aware that lane and road closures can cause disruption, particularly on main routes, so we have made sure that we maintain two-way traffic, wherever possible.

“However, we need to close lanes in close proximity of our work to ensure the safety of our employees and motorists alike.

“We urge everyone to take extra care when driving around roadworks and to follow diversions and speed restrictions whilst our inspections are completed.”

Road signage will be in place during the works to inform motorists of diversions.
