Sheffield Council has announced more 20mph zones in large areas of the city as part of a £4 million road safety improvement scheme.

Roads in Deerlands, Waterthorpe, Highfield, Jordanthorpe, Burncross, Norton, Carter Knowle, Westfield, Herdings, High Green and Fulwood were identified as further areas which could benefit from 20 mph zones.

Work on these will be funded by a Road Safety Fund worth £4 million which was delivered as part of Labour’s budget amendment and covers low speed zones as well as things like safety crossings.

Councillor Julie Grocutt, cabinet member for transport and development, said: “Reducing speeds in residential areas makes more pleasant places for people to live – especially for children and elderly residents – and encourages more people to cycle and walk.”

She added that the council suffered from having its budget cut by 50 percent over the past decade but last year it managed to create the new pot.

Councillor Tony Downing, Lord Mayor and representative for Mosborough, added: “We recently secured an important crossing in Halfway and now we have further plans to make more areas in the ward 20 mph zones. Westfield and Waterthorpe residents have been asking for these changes and with my Labour colleagues we’ve worked on securing additional funds to make this possible.”

He added: “The benefits of 20 mph zones cannot be understated – quite simply, they save lives.

“Each zone will be subject to feasibility work to define the size, location and delivery timescales of the programme. All of the proposals will be consulted publicly, with feedback directly determining what is finally delivered”.

Exploratory work will start in summer.
