For a wide range of successful travel projects, the county would be allocated £ 5,461,550 from the Department for Transport (DfT).

These include ‘School Streets,’ where the streets surrounding the schools are closed to school-time motorists and low-traffic areas (LTNs), where residential side streets are closed to avoid rat-running.

New separated bike lanes and pedestrian enhancements are also planned throughout South Yorkshire.

Sheffield Council received a number of complaints from motorists following a pop-up cycle lane around Shalesmoor/Kelham Island that contributed to extra congestion at peak times.

The Councils, in exchange, would have more time to use the money in order to consult properly, the ministers said.

Transport Secretary Grant Fin said It was nice to see so many people building bicycles and walking in their everyday travel habits.

We know that it is important to have the right infrastructure in place to help them, so that all – cyclists, pedestrians and motorists – can access our roads.
