Work will not take place

Sheffield City Council and its partner Amey, are to be congratulated for the investment on road repairs and replacement of street lights here in north Sheffield.

Whilst some disruption is inevitable, the results are beginning to be seen – better roads, decrease in the need for pothole filling, among others.

So, how disappointing to see the constant errors and misjudgements over the timing of works that affect local communities.

Last week on Thursday, a threatening sign was attached to lampposts on my road in Wadsley.

It read that works would take place from August 5 for four days, (so including Saturday and Sunday), and that the road must be clear of cars between the hours of 7am and 7pm.

The threat came that if cars were present in these hours and on these days they would be towed away.

So, neighbours either moved the cars at night or were up early in the morning for four consecutive days to move the cars.

Did anything happen? Absolutely not – no activity whatsoever, other than all the signs being taken down today.

Let’s get this right Sheffield City Council and Amey – if you aren’t doing work on the days you suggest then at least have the decency to go around and remove the posters.”
