51 bus route could change as part of university improvements

51 bus

The 51 bus could be rerouted as part of the University of Sheffield’s Campus Masterplan

Proposed improvements to the University of Sheffield campus could see the city-bound 51 bus rerouted from Western Bank/Mappin Street to Glossop Road via Clarkson Street and Durham Road.

The change would allow for the pedestrianisation of part of Leavygreave Road and a possible one-way circulatory system to be put in place using Western Bank for outbound and Glossop Road for inbound traffic.

Other ideas that are part of the new proposals include installing pedestrian crossings on Western Bank and improving Mappin Street.

The University is asking for residents to feed back on the masterplan at upcoming events or using their online form.

    The Council and the University will do exactly what they want to do after all the “experts” have had their say and cost the ratepayers a fortune. Heard it all before.

    As long as the bus still gets me to & from town efficiently I can’t see it will make any difference to me.
