The off-centre markings on Sandygate Road will be repainted and put back to their previous location following a review by Sheffield city council’s road safety auditors.
The lines were positioned on the newly-resurfaced road with the intention of improving the safety of cyclists being overtaken going up the hill and to slow traffic coming down the hill.
Crookes Councillor Geoff Smith took this up and has now confirmed that the lines will be put back back to where they were before. He said: “The auditor has recommended that the centre white line should be put back where it was and this has been accepted by the council and Amey.
“As yet I do not know when the work will be carried out but I have urged that it should be done as soon as possible. Thank you to the residents who pursued this issue.”
