Amey have confirmed that any Manchester Road verges that are damaged as part of the Streets Ahead project will be repaired.
Spokesperson Claire Tideswell said: “I have been speaking with our site team and they have advised me that when doing the pavement resurfacing work there may well be some minimal verge damage as a result of the work we’re doing. This will be likely from week commencing 27 February as we move closer towards Crosspool.
“Once the work has been completed we will then re-soil and re-seed any areas which have been damaged as a result of the works. We will take as much care as possible but some damage will unfortunately be inevitable.
“The contractor is aware of the bulbs which are planted in the verges and have bought their concerns to our attention.”
Sheffield city council is looking to extend its snow warden scheme this winter and is offering free shovels to community groups who would like to get involved.
Crosspool Forum is finding out whether anyone might consider volunteering as a Crosspool snow warden. If you’re interested then please let us know by emailing email@example.com or using the form below and we’ll be in touch.
Yes, I’m interested in volunteering to be a Crosspool snow warden:
The damaged manhole cover in the middle of Crosspool precinct will finally be repaired on Sunday 24 June.
The manhole – also known as a Gatic box – is the property and responsibility of National Grid. A spokesperson explained the reason for the delay:
This is a bespoke box, which due to the chamber and apparatus contained beneath it, has to be manufactured accordingly to the size, content and road type. We apologise for the length of time and any inconvenience that this has caused.
Sheffield City Council was informed on 20 April about the damaged manhole and since then traffic cones and ‘keep left’ road signs have been placed to ensure the area is avoided by traffic and pedestrians.
