Road Resurfacing Work – Manchester Road & Rivelin Valley Road

23 Jul

Dear Resident/Business
Road Resurfacing Work – Manchester Road & Rivelin Valley Road
As part of the Streets Ahead highway works we will soon be resurfacing some sections of the following roads;
• Manchester Road – Sheffield/Derbyshire boundary to Rivelin Valley Road.
• Manchester Road – junction of Rivelin Valley Road to Hagg Lane.
• Rivelin Valley Road – junction of Manchester Road to Holme Lane.
Work will take place in late July on Manchester Road (from Sheffield/Derbyshire boundary to Rivelin Valley Road), and work on the remaining section of Manchester Road and Rivelin Valley Road will take place in early to mid-August. Work will take place between the hours of 8pm and 5am, Monday – Friday only.
The work has been scheduled to take place at night to minimise disruption in the area. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and any noise you may experience.
Please note this work will be completed under a road closure and there will be no on-street parking on the section of road that we are resurfacing during working hours. Vehicles left on-street may be towed away and you will need to pay a fee to have your vehicle released.
Temporary road signs will be displayed ten days before work starts confirming the dates and duration of works, and parking restriction signs will be displayed five days before.
Parking and access arrangements
Access to properties on the roads we are working on may be limited during working hours. On-street parking will be as normal at other times. Please let our on-site supervisor know if you need vehicle access to your property for urgent reasons. Pedestrian access and access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.
If you are away during the period in which the works are scheduled to take place, please avoid parking your car on the road. Our work schedule is heavily dependent on the weather and can be affected by unforeseen circumstances so it may be necessary to change the start date at short notice. To ensure we deliver our programme to schedule, we will need to tow cars that are delaying our works.

Bus service and bin collection changes
Changes to your regular bus service or diversion routes will be publicised by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport (SYPTE). Please check your local bus stop or http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com for any route changes. You can also call Traveline on 01709 515151 or follow @TravelSYorks on Twitter.
If there are any changes to your bin collection days these will be communicated by Veolia at http://www.veolia.co.uk/sheffield or on Twitter @Recycle4Shef. Call 0114 273 4567 between 8am and 6pm for more information.

Road Safety
• Be patient and take extra care during road works.
• Make sure to allow extra time for your journey.
• Stick to the designated diversion routes and always drive within the speed limit.
