Night closures on Manchester Road from 22 May 2017

Night closures on Manchester Road from 22 May 2017

Night closures on Manchester Road from 22 May 2017

Parts of Manchester Road will be closed from 7pm to 7am for four weeks from Monday 22 May 2017.

A letter to residents from the Streets Ahead project explains:

8 May 2017

Our reference: A21 Manchester Road

Dear Resident/Business

ROAD RESURFACING – NIGHT WORKING

As part of the Streets Ahead works we are writing to let you know that we are soon to resurface the A57 Manchester Road from the junction of Rivelin Valley Road to the Derbyshire boundary. The work will be completed in stages.

This work is due to start week commencing 22 May and the work will take approximately 2 weeks to complete.

The work in this area has been scheduled to take place on nights between the hours of 7pm and 7am; this is to minimise disruption. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and any noise you may experience.

Please note this work will be completed under a road closure and there will be no on-street parking on the section of road that we are resurfacing during working hours. Vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.

Temporary road signs will be displayed five days before work starts, confirming the dates of work and parking restrictions.

Parking and access arrangements

Access to properties on the roads we are working on maybe limited during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let our on-site supervisor know if you need vehicle access to your property for urgent reasons. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.

If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place please avoid parking your car on the road. Our work schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances so it may be necessary to change the start date at short notice. We will tow cars that are delaying our works.

Bus service and bin collection changes

Changes to your regular bus service or diversion routes will be publicised by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport (SYPTE). Please check your local bus stop or http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com for any route changes. You can also call Traveline on 01709 515151 or follow @TravelSYorks on Twitter.

If there are any changes to your bin collection days these will be communicated by Veolia at http://www.veolia.co.uk/sheffield on Twitter @Recycle4Shef or by calling 0114 273 4567 between 8am and 6pm.

Road Safety

We are working with the Council’s Road Safety Team to remind all road users to watch out for others on the road and think about their needs. Please be patient and take extra care during road works. Make sure to allow extra time for your journey. Stick to the designated diversion routes and always drive within the speed limit and to suit the conditions of the road. The difference of a few miles per hour can mean the difference between life and death. Think! Slow down.

Bogus Callers

If you are approached by someone claiming to be from Amey, the Council or connected to the Streets Ahead project offering to resurface your drive please do not handover any money. If possible take the callers details, including their vehicle registration number and we will inform the Police. All Streets Ahead and Amey employees carry identity cards. If you have any doubts about the identity of a person carrying an identity card please call customer services.

Further information
Please follow us on Twitter @sccstreetsahead #SAA21 for further information and updates about local works.

If you would like to discuss any issues, please contact us on 0114 273 4567 or email

streetsahead@sheffield.gov.uk

Thank you

We appreciate that any disruption can be frustrating and thank you for your understanding whilst these important works are completed.

Kind regards

Streets Ahead
