Decision details

North Sheffield Better Buses - High Street, Ecclesfield

Decision Maker: Highway Cabinet Member Decision Session

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


High Street, Ecclesfield - when buses pull into the stop opposite the shops, there is little room for vehicles to pass by between the bus and any vehicles parked outside the shops.  This causes delays, in both directions, for all vehicles. A scheme comprising a new bus lay-by, uncontrolled pedestrian crossing points and revised waiting restrictions was consulted upon in July/August 2016. One objection was received.



The Executive Director, Place submitted a report in relation to the North Sheffield Better Buses Project at High Street, Ecclesfield.









approval be given to the scheme as shown in Appendix A of the report, and it be implemented subject to any required re-confirmation of costs after detailed design (including any commuted sums);






the Traffic Regulation Order relating to the proposed waiting restrictions be made in accordance with the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984; and






the respondents be informed accordingly.





Reasons for Decision




The revised scheme described in this report will contribute to improving journey times and reliability for bus services and other traffic along this route. At the same time, it addresses the concerns of respondents to the original proposal.




The scheme is being designed in detail with funding available to allow the scheme to be built in 2016/17.




Alternatives Considered and Rejected




There are no other alternative options that address this particular issue. Doing nothing would not address the issues that regularly occur at the location. The design is, therefore, the preferred option.




Any Interest Declared or Dispensation Granted








Reason for Exemption if Public/Press Excluded During Consideration








Respective Director Responsible for Implementation




Simon Green, Executive Director, Place




Relevant Scrutiny and Policy Development Committee If Decision Called In
