Feedback from the Brough community drop-in event

Listening to you - feedback from the community drop-in event about Brough.


Pedestrian and cycle access

We have reviewed this and can now provide an update that pedestrian and cycle access will be available from 4.30pm until 8am. This arrangement will be in place 7 days a week.

We have been able to make this change and allow this access by looking carefully at how we work on the site and by changing our plans and resources. Given all this, we will still keep to the planned timetable of a 12-week closure, dependent on weather and ground conditions.

Depending on the type of works we are undertaking on the site, we hope to be able to provide a 30 minute pedestrian access slot at lunchtime from midday to 12.30pm. This lunch period option is not guaranteed and will depend on what we find on the ground following several weeks on site as well as ground conditions.

We will review the arrangements as the work progresses to see if we can introduce increased pedestrian access during the day at a later date.

Local footpaths are also available to use and will have additional notices in place to highlight them to people.

7 days a week working

Our team aim to be on site 7 days a week, to help us get the repairs completed more quickly, minimising inconvenience for local residents and businesses, school children, commuters and bus users.

Public transport

We have also reviewed the proposed public transport arrangements and have made the following changes.

Taking into account feedback received, we will now be providing a shuttle bus from the Batham Gate bus stop in Bradwell to Castleton Bus Station. This will connect passengers to the 173 and 272 services, for onward journeys to Hope, Bamford and the Sheffield interchange. For the 257 service, passengers need to go to Castleton and change on to Bamford.

The service will be provided by Hulleys and will operate Monday to Saturday, and then with an amended timetable on Sundays.

Timetables for the shuttle bus service are available on bus services affected by the Brough retaining wall repairs. The timetable has been updated following minor changes by First South Yorkshire to their 272 service. The shuttle bus services timetable remains unchanged.

Timetables will also be available at the Batham Gate bus stops and the Bradwell Post Office from next week to inform passengers about the temporary arrangements.

We have also extended the operating hours of the shuttle bus service, with a service from Castleton at 8pm to return passengers to Bradwell at 8:30pm.

We hope that these changes are helpful and shows our commitment to listen to the views of local people and, where we can, adjust our arrangements to minimise inconvenience as best we can.
