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.”
If your black bin is due for collection on Monday please put it out on Saturday 22 October instead (before 7am).
On Monday there is a one-day strike by some staff at our contractor Veolia Sheffield which means black bins won’t be collected. Please place recycling blue bins / boxes and green bins out as normal, however some may be collected later in the week.
All Household Waste Recycling Centres will remain open and collections should return to normal on Tuesday.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience and will collect a small amount of side waste when we catch up on your black bins on Saturday 22 October.
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.

A new range of Sheffield-themed cards designed by a local mum have gone in sale in Lounge @ Crosspool cafe.
Kate Webster’s Tipsy Towers cards include a design featuring a bottle of Henderson’s Relish having a fight with Lea & Perrins in a supermarket trolley, and a card with Sheffield’s iconic Tinsley Towers appearing as two pints of beer and a card
Crosspool-based Kate said: “You have to know Sheffield to appreciate the designs – these are local cards for local people. They make a refreshing change from most of the cards out there.
“I only studied Photoshop to accompany my web design skills, not expecting it to lead to anything else. I’ve had a quite a few compliments on the finished results.
“It means a lot that Paula in Lounge wanted to stock my cards as it gave me the confidence to approach other shops including Sheffield Scene and Bessimer Galleries in the city centre.”
Kate plans to expand the range with Sheffield-themed Valentine’s cards.
