Part of Manchester Road in Crosspool will be closed 7pm-7am from Monday 12 to Friday 16 June for Streets Ahead work.
Buses on service 51 will run between Broomhill and Crosspool along Whitham Road, Crookes Road, Lydgate Lane and Sandygate Road.
The 51 bus switches today to its summer service.
The new timetable also shows the changes in the Western Bank area.
The 51 and 52 buses heading towards town will take a different route near the university and Weston Park from Monday 13 June.
Routes 51, 52 and 52a will now turn right onto Clarkson Street at the Children’s Hospital. They will then turn left onto Durham Road, where there will be a new bus stop, before joining Glossop Road then West Street.
The outbound service is unchanged.
The 51 bus route will be changed slightly due to resurfacing works for the next three Sundays.
On Sundays 22 and 29 November and 6 December from 6am to 5pm the Crosspool-bound 51 bus will travel as normal to to Western Bank then go left down Clarkson Street, right onto Glossop Road, left to Fulwood Road then continue as normal to Lodge Moor.
City-bound journeys are unaffected.
Update 6 August: Looks like the shuttle bus may be in use now.
Update 3 August: After all the fuss, it seems the 51 is going via Manchester Road/Coldwell Lane after all.
31 July, 9am update: First Bus have announced that they will provide a free shuttle bus between Crosspool and Brook Hill. This will operate every 30 minutes between approximately 7.30am and 6.30pm. No fares will be charged – this is to feed into the main 51 bus.
The 51 bus service will not run along part of Sandygate Road next week during the day due to road improvement works for the Streets Ahead project.
From Monday 3 to Friday 7 August, from 7am-7pm each day, 51 buses will run between Broomhill and Sandygate along Fulwood Road, Gladstone Road, Ivy Park Road, Carsick Hill Road and re-join the normal route on Sandygate Road to and form Lodge Moor.
Buses on services 273, 274 and 275 are not affected and will still run along Manchester Road and along Benty Lane and Sandygate Road travelling towards the city centre through Crosspool as normal.
At the Crosspool Forum Open Meeting last night concerns were raised in particular about families not being able to easily access Ryegate Children’s Centre on Manchester Road.
The Sheffield Bus Partnership is asking residents to give their views on proposed changes to local bus routes:
Up to 16cm of snow fell on Crosspool on Boxing day evening, causing delays for drivers and the cancellation of the 51 bus service.
Traffic was moving slowly on roads all over Sheffield as the snow settled into the evening with delays on major roads and some minor roads blocked.
One journey from Crosspool to Millhouses reportedly took two hours. Some drivers abandoned their cars, deciding instead to continue their journey on foot.
As of 8am this morning First announced that the 51 bus service was suspended due to the conditions. It was running again by 4pm.
Many families took advantage of the holiday snow and ventured out for sledging, snowmen and snowball fights.
Here’s a selection of photos from Twitter and some taken this morning.
On Friday night over 60 residents gathered at St. Columba’s church to put their questions to representatives from First, provider of Crosspool’s 51 bus service.
Almost 30 questions were taken from the floor and answered by First’s commercial manager Adam Timewell and business manager John Eardley.
Issues and comments that were covered include:
Adam and John have agreed to attend the next Crosspool Forum Open Meeting on 31 July to report back on their progress.
Are you dissatisfied with the 51 bus service? Come along to a public meeting in Crosspool to discuss the Crosspool/Lodge Moor service with a representative of First group later this month.
The meeting takes place on Friday 30 May at St Columba’s church and starts at 7pm.
First Bus Commercial Director Adam Timewell will be in attendance to address your concerns and answer questions about the service.
The meeting has been organised on behalf of the three Crookes councillors as one of their public meetings under the new local ward arrangements.
Roadworks and temporary traffic lights have caused major bottlenecks through Broomhill this morning.
Emergency work by Northern Powergrid is taking place to repair a cable fault outside On-A-Roll sandwich shop causing power loss to local businesses. Only one lane of traffic is able to pass through at a time.
Earlier today, the 51 bus was diverted in both directions, bypassing Weston Park and the university stops.
The map on roadworks.org shows progress with the repair, although there is no firm indication yet how long it will take.
Update 2pm: reports that Broomhill is now clear of the works and there are no longer any major hold ups.
