Summary of issues

I Inspected Richmond - Sheffield City Centre section of the
Trans-Pennine Trail/National Cycle Network yesterday and noted the
following issues.

Firstly, the signs have been replaced, particularly at the junction
where the routes 6 & 67 diverge. Many thanks for that. I will ask the
local rangers to keep an eye on them and report any vandalism so we can hopefully
nip it in the bud (leia!).

Broken glass on section near Travelodge, just beyond Prince of Wales Rd

Broken glass and litter between Beaumont Rd Nth & Manor Way,
particularly around the access points. I am please to note that the
litter bin at Manor Way
has not been vandalised and is well used - more litter bins at access
points would relieve the general litter problem.

Flooding at Waltheof - this is a recurrent drainage problem.

Broken glass on section alongside the parkway, by Victoria Wharf

As there is a Bank Holiday coming up could we arrange for this entire
section to be mechanically swept afterwards - it is always
in a very poor state after bank holidays.

Elsewhere on the NCN the following issues have been reported:-
Litter at High Hazel park (upper entrance)

On the Weirs Walk East Coast Rd - Stephenson Rd section the bench and
rubbish bin have been vandalized.
The bin near Sanderson's Weir has been burnt out.
Wheelie bin in river Don near norfolk Bridge

Porter Valley. Clough Lane - where the off-road route splits from the
on-road the sign has been vandalized.
The bridleway avoiding Forge Dame is in need of repair

Elsewhere in the city the following issues have been reported:-

A sign is needed to direct cyclists up Meetinghouse lane when
following Markets - University route.

Broken Glass on the cycle way bridge crossing Coleridge Rd (This is a
recurrent problem)

Poor maintenance of cycle lanes around Darnall Main Rd/Prince of Wales Rd.

Flora St - trees need cutting back
