TRAFFIC WARNING: ‘Bus chaos’ as roadworks cause delays in northern Sheffield

Have your say

Buses are being delayed by up to 40 minutes in northern parts of Sheffield this afternoon as roadworks cause disruption.

Three-way traffic lights on Barnsley Road and Firvale Junction have resulted in Travel South Yorkshire issuing a warning for people to allow extra time for their journeys due to current ‘heavy delays’.

A Star reader said there was ‘absolute chaos’ on the buses this afternoon, with problems affecting the 75, 76 and 88 routes.

He said: “Buses are running about 40 minutes late. People have been getting a bit angry with the bus drivers, but it isn’t the drivers’ fault. The drivers can’t do anything about it.”
