Several Crosspool roads will be gritted this winter following the results of a
public consultation into winter road maintenance.
Council chiefs have changed their mind on the gritting of 141 roads. Local streets including Hagg Hill, Coldwell Lane, Stephen Hill, Watt Lane, Back Lane and Bole Hill Road will now be included on gritting routes.

Several roads in Crosspool are included in a list of streets that will no longer be gritted if new proposals come into force in October.
The Sheffield City Council winter road maintenance proposals affect 100 miles of road in the city and have come about due to cuts in funding from central government.
Affected local streets include Hagg Hill, Coldwell Lane, Stephen Hill, Watt Lane and Back Lane. You can see these streets highlighted on the council’s
interactive online map.
