RESURFACING WORK on sections of Manchester Road & Rivelin Valley Road

As part of the Streets Ahead highway works Amey will soon be resurfacing some sections of the following roads;

  • Manchester Road – Sheffield/Derbyshire boundary to Rivelin Valley Road.
  • Manchester Road – junction of Rivelin Valley Road to Hagg Lane.
  • Rivelin Valley Road – junction of Manchester Road to Holme Lane.


    Manchester Road/Rivelin Valley Road – Rivelin Valley

Work is about to start on Manchester Road (from Sheffield/Derbyshire boundary to Rivelin Valley Road) and work on the remaining section of Manchester Road and Rivelin Valley Road will take place in early to mid-August. Work will take place between the hours of 8pm and 5am, Monday – Friday only.

The work has been scheduled to take place at night to minimise disruption in the area. Amey appreciate that any disruption can be frustrating and thank you for your understanding whilst these important works are completed.

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 they 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 ten days before work starts confirming the dates and duration of works and parking restriction signs will be displayed five days before.

Access to properties on the roads being worked on may be limited during working hours. On-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let the Amey 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. The 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. To ensure that the programme is delivered to schedule, cars that are delaying the works will need to be towed away.

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 or on Twitter @Recycle4Shef. Call 0114 273 4567 between 8am and 6pm for more information.


  • 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.

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

Saturday 6th July, the morning started off raining overcast and dank, not a promising start to the day for the annual Crosspool Summer Fayre.2019 summer fayre collage

After a last-minute rush erecting the marquees, gazebos and inflating the bouncy castle/slide; the Fayre was officially open by the Rev. Suzanna Nockles. Happily the clouds had moved away to allow the warm sun to shine, on what turned out to be a wonderful afternoon for the many visitors to enjoy an upbeat performance by the ever-popular Scoil Rince Nua Irish Dancers – a rousing dance routine by the LMW Dance troop – Henry the cheeky monkey up to his usual tricks with the children’s favourite entertainer Barney Baloney –  the big band sound of Glenn Miller by the Ambassador Swing Band performing to a full audience, enjoying a cream tea provided by the Crosspool WI.

The local Holly Hagg Alpacas and Llama were a big favourite with the children as was the face painting, Henna Tattooed art and the traditional side stalls/attractions – wet sponge. splat the rat, archery, coconut shy, books, bric-a-brac, hot dogs, burgers, ice creams to mention but a few.
Dave Bolsover’s amazing family guitar stall gave budding musicians the chance to have a go at strumming, possibly to stardom.

Later in the afternoon the 2019 Crosspool Festival scarecrow competition winners and raffle winners were presented with their prizes. All the children received a gift for a happy smile.

The Crosspool Forum organisers would like to thank all this year’s sponsors, the team of local people that turned up in the rain to help set up the event and everyone for attending and making this year’s Crosspool Summer Fayre a special day for everyone. Thank you.
