Sheffield Council Traffic Regulation Order

Recommended Posts

Totally confused by all this . Can I drive down Halifax Rd and turn to go and park where I am a member at the Niagara ground ?

It's almost as if the council want us to move to an out of town stadium near a main dual carriageway (with easy access to the motorway), and nearby supertam links etc....

Does anybody know if the club have got involved in discussions with the relevant party?

All we got was the letter. There's usually some sort of sign up on lampposts etc (there is at the moment, but about something else)

Think about it, current road closures and diversions are not in accordance with the law as they've not gone through a TRO whether than be temporary or permanent

The council will have the amend these plans significantly.

 

Penistone Road is a main arterial route in and out of the city. There's no way they can close this on a Saturday when it's at its busiest. The diversion will mean traffic significantly backing up to the jcn of Parkside Road onto Penistone Road for most of the day, which in itself causes issues with emergency vehicle movements, which is one of the so called reasons given for the plans in the first place.

 

How do the residents of the terrace streets on the North side of the ground function - essential the plans say you can't drive, unless they have dispensation. I suspect this is a deprivation of liability issue and could be easily challenged.

 

Why have they targeted no parking restrictions on Rawson Spring Road? Is there a safety issue here?

 

Bizarre.

Bingo.  The hysterical overreaction on here has been hilarious to read.

Yes, but you might need to set off on Thursday for a Saturday game

After the last match I went straight to peddler market. Not one bus passed me on the way. How are people supposed to get to and from the matches?

Not to mention night matches - Penistone Road is already chocka at rush hour, so how is all that traffic going to cope when it's closed?

 

 

To think all this has stemmed directly from SYP not policing one game properly. I feel sorry for people at the SCC Christmas party, with all those sledgehammers being used to crack the nuts...

Wonder if we’d still be in the same situation if the ground had been updated like these plans. Still no room outside Leppings, Still cramped for space all round the ground in fact. Imagine all that money getting spent and we still got done over by the SAG

Nobody really likes us do they?

It's a conspiracy.

Is it since the blunts went up? It seems to have got worse since then.

it appears that someone in power somewhere is doing their best to stifle SWFC from plying their trade in front of paying customers.

perhaps we need to hire some serious professionals to look into how things run so smoothly at the lane, or to ask if finding they're not running any smoother, why restrictions have not been implemented there?

could it be that someone with a dislike of SWFC has, and is driving their own agenda?

it looks a tad lopsided from someone from outside looking in I can assure you.

couldn't agree more ,the trouble is the council and westminister are a bunch b*st*ards who don't do whats right . if the PLO or IRA were in town they would roll out the red carpet like they would for bin ladens family that's what we are up against . not 1 person even a child can make any sense on whats going off around our ground , in fact I think they have deliberately allowed us to sell 4500 to leeds scum this Saturday on the hope that they will cause as much mayhem as possible in there agenda to shut us down.

Just had this popped through my letterbox. Looks like the temporary traffic restrictions in place are being proposed to be permanent. Not sure if this means the access to the ground restrictions and capacity reductions will stay too.

Spoke to the head of Sheffield Highways earlier this year on this issue we have with the carriageway width, sighting distance, turning radii and lack of adequate markings. He was quite content to state that the road in question did not meet current highway standards and acknowledged the accidents on it were probably down to it. Said they did not have any cash to rectify anything. Great to know that was clearly pap as they have managed to conduct a study with a view to implementing the points.

yer ive mention about loftus road many time when sag have reduced our capacity over last 3 years . its unreal how little space there is in there and its in middle of a housing estate ,our ground has way more room. but this has nothing to do with safety what there doing I know that you know that everyone who goes to Hillsborough knows that.

I spoke to Tim on Friday. Apparently nothing is changing on match days apart from parking won’t be allowed on the pavements.There won’t be extra road closures.
