Manchester Road speed signs due to be removed today

The two vehicle-activated signs on Manchester Road are due to be removed today (Friday 20 August) by Streetforce.

The Central Area Community Assembly commissioned two sets of detectors from Sheffield Council’s road safety department. These were to be installed by Streetforce for an eight-week period at different locations highlighted by the local community as being prone to traffic speeding.

The first signs to be installed, on the Broomhill end of Manchester Road, are due to be removed today. At 8:30am this morning, only the the speed sign for vehicles coming up the hill was operational.

The analysed data gathered is likely to be used for improving road safety at the two locations. We’ll post more information as we hear about it.
