A zebra crossing has been installed on Firshill Crescent, after a successful campaign by St Catherine’s School and local residents.
Whilst local schools were closed in October, planned traffic control measures, including yellow lines and zigzags, were put in place outside St Catherine’s school and the Crescent Community Centre. The measures were agreed as part of the planning approval for the expansion of St Catherine’s School. Parking on Firshill Crescent is more restricted now, and parents using the local schools are encouraged to ‘park and stride’ from the Sheffield United Academy; they have kindly agreed that parents can use their car park.
Parking Services are attending regularly to help to deal with any parking issues, and everyone is working hard to reduce disruption to residents and bus services at busy school times. Thank you to everyone in the community for their support in making the Firshill estate safer for pedestrians (both young and older)!
