Traffic is being diverted up Townhead Street to Pinfold Street from Shalesmoor and up Rockingham Street to West Street from the University of Sheffield.

But a number of motorists have been caught out by the one-way system at the end of Pinfold Street and are only being alerted by drivers heading the opposite direction, due to poor signage.

The Star has seen a number of near-misses on Pinfold Street and contacted Sheffield Council for a comment.
