Streets Ahead works will consist of some (or all) of the following, depending on what is required for your street:
- replacing the remaining older style street lights and maintaining the new lighting columns and lamps
- replacing and maintaining road-side trees
- maintaining road drains (gullies)
- upgrading the surface water drainage system
- replacing broken and misaligned kerbs
- resurfacing and maintaining roads and pavements
Streets Ahead works will only be carried out on adopted roads. Other roads (such as private roads, trunk roads and unadopted public highways) are not included.
Those of you directly affected by the Streets Ahead works will receive a letter advising you of the work arrangements before we start work on your street.
On-street signs will be in place approximately 5 days prior to work starting confirming the start date and duration of the works.
As part of the Streets Ahead programme, some roads in Sheffield, which are in a reasonable condition, are receiving a micro-surfacing treatment.
Micro-surfacing is a way of extending the life of the road by sealing out water and creating a new top layer. The new treatment may appear rough after it's laid but will settle within a short time. We'll return following our completed works to sweep any loose stones from the surface.
Ironworks, such as gullies and manholes, may also be adjusted following the surfacing work.
You'll receive a letter and information leaflet advising you of our arrangements before we start work on your street. On-street signs, confirming the start date and duration of the works, will be in place approximately 5 days prior to work starting .
