Oughtibridge 3/4 21st/22nd September travel

Post by JoS » Wed Sep 11, 2019 3:11 pm

Hi everybody,

There are likely to be a few travel problems around Sheffield on the weekend of Oughtibridge slalom (21st-22nd September) so I thought I'd put them up here and warn people.
Saturday 21st September: Football match at Hillsborough, kickoff 15:00. Likely to be traffic on the way through Sheffield if you set off before 15:00 or after 16:30 especially if you plan to go through Hillsborough to the A61 Penistone Road. We will probably finish on the Saturday while the match is on, and the traffic will be ok, but if you do leave outside that, it's often easier to go left over the bridge in Oughtibridge and meet up with the A61 that way.

Sunday 22nd September: Sheffield 10K Run For All is on and there will be road closures on the west side of Sheffield from 04:00-16:00. A map of road closures is here:

If you are coming from south of Sheffield via the M1, A61 etc. go round the ring road anticlockwise (east of Sheffield).

In addition to these, it is university arrivals weekend (OH YAY) so everything is likely to be busy and full of people who are a bit lost and can't see their rearview mirrors through a car full of stuff, so please leave yourself extra time.
