Amendments to the proposals for Burngreave buses, announced in last month’s Messenger, are being considered following a series of consultation meetings held last month.
‘North Sheffield Better Buses’ team received feedback from 220 people on various aspects of the plans, as well as a 150-strong petition specifically opposed to moving the out-of-city bus stop away from the proposed new junction at Catherine Road. This was widely objected in other consultations, as was the proposed closure of Burngreave Street.
These issues, as well as improved pedestrian and cycling facilities, are being considered by the Better Buses team, who are developing amendments aiming to meet as many of the concerns raised as possible, while still meeting the original objectives.
Residents will have further opportunity to comment as the plans go through Traffic Regulation Orders, and to the City Council’s Planning and Highways Board. Another leaflet detailing proposals and inviting comments will be distributed shortly.
