TRAFFIC WARNING: ‘Bus chaos’ as roadworks cause delays in northern Sheffield


Buses are being delayed by up to 40 minutes in northern parts of Sheffield this afternoon as roadworks cause disruption.

Three-way traffic lights on Barnsley Road and Firvale Junction have resulted in Travel South Yorkshire issuing a warning for people to allow extra time for their journeys due to current ‘heavy delays’.

A Star reader said there was ‘absolute chaos’ on the buses this afternoon, with problems affecting the 75, 76 and 88 routes.

He said: “Buses are running about 40 minutes late. People have been getting a bit angry with the bus drivers, but it isn’t the drivers’ fault. The drivers can’t do anything about it.”
