A letter to residents from the Streets Ahead project explains:

Our reference: A21 Manchester Road

Dear Resident/Business

ROAD RESURFACING – NIGHT WORKING

As part of the Streets Ahead works we are writing to let you know that we are soon to resurface the A57 Manchester Road from the junction of Rivelin Valley Road to the Derbyshire boundary. The work will be completed in stages.

This work is due to start week commencing 22 May and the work will take approximately 2 weeks to complete.

The work in this area has been scheduled to take place on nights between the hours of 7pm and 7am; this is to minimise disruption. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and any noise you may experience.

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 we 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 five days before work starts, confirming the dates of work and parking restrictions.

Parking and access arrangements

Access to properties on the roads we are working on maybe limited during working hours. Most roads will be open and on-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let our 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. Our 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. We will tow cars that are delaying our works.

Bus service and bin collection changes

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 on Twitter @Recycle4Shef or by calling 0114 273 4567 between 8am and 6pm.

Road Safety

We are working with the Council’s Road Safety Team to remind all road users to watch out for others on the road and think about their needs. Please 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 and to suit the conditions of the road. The difference of a few miles per hour can mean the difference between life and death. Think! Slow down.

Bogus Callers

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

Please follow us on Twitter @sccstreetsahead #SAA21 for further information and updates about local works.

Thank you

We appreciate that any disruption can be frustrating and thank you for your understanding whilst these important works are completed.

Kind regards

Streets Ahead

Hagg Hill/Stephen Hill included in bike challenge

Hagg Hill/Stephen Hill are one of seven hills selected to be selected as part of this year’s Magnificent Seven bike challenge on Sunday 19 March.

The Magnificent Seven is a unique cycling event, the first of its kind in Sheffield. Not for the fainthearted, the race is a cross between a sportive and a hill climb, that invites participants to face seven of the city’s toughest hills.

The route, which is nearly 27 miles, presents each rider with over 3,800ft of climbing, with inclines ranging from 9 to 23 per cent.

It’s expected that the roads in this area will be closed for around 30 minutes around the estimated times of 10:50-11:20am. Residents living nearby should have received a letter.

You’re encouraged to turn out on the day to support the riders.

The Plough pub listed as community asset

The Plough, Sandygate Road
Is The Plough, Sandygate Road

The Plough pub on Sandygate Road has been listed as an asset of community value.

This means that that in the event of it being put up for sale the group lodging the application would be given time to come up with a bid to buy it. There is no guarantee that this bid would be accepted by the seller.

With the rumoured threat of the pub being sold and turned into a convenience store, a group of regulars have launched an online change.org petition and a paper petition in the pub that you’re invited to sign. There’s also a Save the Plough Facebook community group which they’ll use to keep everyone up to date.

The Plough is one of three remaining pubs in Crosspool and it is believed that a public house has stood on the site for around 400 years. The pub is famously located opposite Hallam FC’s Sandygate stadium, the oldest football ground in the world.

Is The Plough on Sandygate Road under threat of closure?

A group of regulars at The Plough have started a campaign to protect the pub from any future attempts to close it or turn it into a convenience store.

The Plough is one of three remaining pubs in Crosspool and it is believed that a public house has stood on the site for around 400 years. The pub is famously located opposite Hallam FC’s Sandygate stadium, the oldest football ground in the world.

There’s currently speculation around what the future holds for the Sandygate Road pub. As a result, a group of drinkers are exploring whether it could be registered as a community asset to help protect it from any future developments.

They’ve launched an online change.org petition and a paper petition in the pub that you’re invited to sign. There’s also a Save the Plough Facebook community group which they’ll use to keep everyone up to date.

Concerns were also raised by Crosspool residents at the Open Meeting last Friday and a local councillor has promised to investigate how likely it is that The Plough will become a convenience store.

The Motor World car parts and accessories retailer has gone into administration, resulting in closure of its Crosspool store.

If a buyer is found for the business some branches of Motor World could reopen, but it is not known if this would include the Crosspool shop.

In 2011, a planning application to convert Motor World into a convenience store was rejected.

The Co-operative Travel in Crosspool is to close its doors for the final time on Thursday 15 August.

The closure is a consequence of the Co-operative Travel Thomas Cook partnership reorganisation.

Sadly, all staff at the Crosspool branch will be made redundant. Customer files will be transferred to the Hillsborough branch.
