Lib Dems Call on Council chiefs to reconsider unpopular bus lane

The plans that would see bus lanes introduced on Abbeydale and Ecclesall Roads have attracted thousands of comments during consultation that has taken place over the last two months and the Liberal Democrats say it is time to reconsider rather than pushing ahead with the current disliked proposals.

Lib Dem Transport Spokesman Councillor Tim Huggan said; “These plans would have a major effect on many local businesses, making it harder for people to get to some of the city’s main shopping streets outside of the town centre. Whilst we support measures to strengthen public transport these plans are not right for these roads and need to be withdrawn"

“We want the South Yorkshire Mayor to move forward on the bus franchise model for public transport, that would lead to a regular, frequent and more reliable bus services for Sheffield Residents – Cllr Johnson should join us in those efforts.”
