Dear Mr DeVeaux
Sheffield Lane Rat Run
Thank you for your recent petition asking that the Council takes action against drivers that you feel are abusing the current restrictions on traffic movement on Sheffield Lane at Catcliffe. Those restrictions being a ‘No Entry’ for traffic from Poplar Way and a ‘Prohibition of Driving except for access’ from Orgreave Road.
Whilst the Council acknowledges road users’ frustrations
about traffic abusing these restrictions enforcement of moving
traffic restrictions rather than yellow line parking restrictions
is one undertaken by South Yorkshire Police.
Therefore, in the first instance we will forward your concerns and those of your fellow petitioners to South Yorkshire Police for them to give consideration to the points you raise.
However, we will also look into the points you raise about making the restrictions more conspicuous and as self-regulating as possible.
