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.
Local residents are being consulted on two options to make it easier to cross the road in Broomhill at the Crookes Road/Fulwood Road/Nile Street/Whitham Road junction.
One proposal would see vehicles banned from turning left from Fulwood Road into Crookes Road and an extra crossing inserted on Fulwood Road between the benches outside Cream coffee shop and Help the Aged:
The other option includes a slip road from Fulwood Road up to Crookes Road and would result in the loss of two parking spaces from the adjacent shopping parade.
Any changes will be of interest to readers of this website as they could indirectly affect the flow of traffic on both Lydgate Lane and also Manchester Road, two of the key routes up to Crosspool.
A Sheffield Star article says that members of Broomhill Forum have indicated a preference for the second option but final judgement is being reserved until more views are known.
