Creation of a new dual two-lane route around the centre of Sheffield, partly on a new alignment and partly by widening existing roads. The new route is effectively an inner ring road, and is intended to largely replace the abandoned 1960s attempt at an inner ring that was disruptive and caused a great deal of severance. The new road is at-grade and features extensive landscaping.
Stage 1 of the new road has already been completed and current works (detailed on this page) comprise Stage 2.
An anonymous contributor informs us that the plan for completing each section is as follows:
May 2006: Russell Street to Corporation Street via part of the new Corporation Street Gyratory
September 2006: Shalesmoor roundabout; Shalesmoor (to Gibraltar Street) in both directions
February 2007: Corporation Street in both directions
July 2007: new links to Savile Street and Sheffield Parkway
This scheme was completed in and we're no longer accepting updates or changes to this page.
