Out Surveying


Our Rangers  were out this morning at Blonk Street for our second questionnaire stint.  They completed 20 and sent them off to the TPT Office.  Interesting morning today with a wide variety of people/activities.

They also took a few minutes to place an additional sign where the Five Weirs Walk leaves Attercliffe Rd.

The 5WW is closed between Effingham Rd and Attercliffe Rd for about 3 weeks while a building is demolished. There should be a diversion in place via Leveson St. This is a planned closure of which we were notified.

Closure at Barrow Road

The bridge at Barrow Road which carries the TPT north of Meadowhall was struck by a lorry last week, some photos of the damage below.

SCC's structures team have been out to assess and have decided that in the interest of safety the shared use footway at Barrow Road should be closed to pedestrians and cyclists. They also recommend that the track should be closed until Sustrans and our structures team have been out to assess the full extent of the damage. We know that there are no heavy vehicles going over the bridge but we’re not sure of the impact on the overall structure.

I’m not sure how long the sections should be closed for but should have more information next week after the assessment has been carried out by Sustrans. 






Good Gym Great Guys!
