Utilising the existing trainline to improve connection to Sheffield centre. As more new build, (which should include a significant percentage of social housing), grows along the Stocksbridge to Middlewood corridor, the additional car traffic will too. An alternative public transport link is vital. Buses will not be able to cope alone, the current road is not wide enough to allow bus/cycle lanes. Journey times will only increase, alongside the hazards to cyclists, especially at current pressure times.Tram extension or tramtrain will be increasingly economically viable. Reduction to car journies will have a positive environmental effect. Has anyone ever counted how many 1 person only in cars drive from Stocksbridge to Middlewood/Sheffield? I know that I do, but would not if a better link existed.
