Oppose bus lane changes to Abbeydale Road

We the undersigned petition the council to not change the bus lane times for Abbeydale Road

The bus lane works well during the morning and evening rush hours and outside of these times provides parking for people visiting many local businesses on the road.
If the bus lane becomes 7am to 7pm local businesses will suffer from reduced footfall. People will be more likely to go to st James's retail park which is already very congested or meadowhall causing longer journeries and more poltution.
A further consiquence of longer bus lane times on Abbeydale Road is that people will park on side streets which will mean local residents will not be able to park near their home during these times.
The potential gains from longer bus lane operation are very slight, the potential losses for businesses already hammered by Covid are significant.
