Our letter to Sheffield City Council of July 2011
Ecclesfield Conservation Society has expressed concerns on a number of occasions with regard to the volume of traffic travelling through Ecclesfield via Wheel Lane, The Wheel, Town End Road And Church Street.
As a result we conducted 2 surveys showing the volume of traffic. I enclose the results for your consideration.
The Conservation Group and the residents of Ecclesfield are asking for a crossing across Church Street. A pedestrian crossing is needed from Priory Road and the NW side of Church Street.
The volume of traffic is not likely to decrease particularly with the opening of a 24 hour Asda and the proposalsfor Aldi on The Common.
I would welcome your response to our requests. The next meeting of the Consevation Society is on 19th September 2011.
Chair Ecclesfield Conservation Society
have now done a second survey to check the results of the first. The

Both surveys show that the average number of vehicles passing through the Church St./St Mary's lane junction over the 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. period is around 1,000 per hour. The detailed results can be seen by clicking on the picture of the left.

the form out,

St. Mary's Lane.
A Copy will also be available for signing in St. Marys Church.
| In order to see why we were having such
difficulty crossing Church St. we did a traffic survey. We chose the
portion of Church Street which forms a "T" junction with St. Marys Lane as being the
place where most pedestrians need to cross in order to get to the
Church, the Gatty Hall, or the houses on the North-West side of
