The Streets Ahead team is asking residents and businesses to tell them what they think about the works that have been carried out across the city.

People are being urged to complete a short online questionnaire, which has been launched today, asking them about many different aspects of the upgrade works, including road and pavement resurfacing and the installations of the new energy efficient LED streetlights that have been carried out across the city so far.

Cllr Bryan Lodge Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “We are almost four years into the five year period of upgrade works in the city. We have completed more than 450 miles of road resurfacing and more than 1,000 miles of pavement resurfacing. Moving around the city we can all see the change that the Streets Ahead works are making.

“This questionnaire is designed to gauge residents and businesses views about all aspects of the works. This data will help the team as we move from the upgrading phase to the maintenance phase of the contract.”

Graeme Symonds, Streets Ahead’s CIP Director, said: “We carry out a questionnaire like this regularly so that we can see what people think of the work that has been carried out so far. We are asking the public, particularly those that have already had Streets Ahead works take place on their street, questions about the works so that we can understand more about what people think about the upgrades.”

The questionnaire should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete and it can be done online at: https://sheffield.citizenspace.com/place-business-strategy/streets-ahead-scheme-feedback-survey

For residents that do not have access to the internet, but would like to let Streets Ahead know what they think about the works, paper questionnaires are available via 0114 273 4567.
