About the event

Neepsend and Kelham has been designed to reinforce and accelerate the development of Neepsend and Kelham, helping to improve the environment for those living, working and visiting these areas.

This civil engineering project involves installing Sheffield’s first ‘Dutch-style’ roundabout, outside the Emergency Services Museum on Tenter Street/West Bar. The roundabout at the Tenter Street/Broad Lane junction will also be reconfigured into a ‘squashed roundabout’. Pavements will be widened and segregated cycle lanes built. These changes will enable pedestrians and cyclists to have priority over motorists, making it easier to use active modes of travel around the city centre.  Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) will also be installed then planted with flowers and plants to alleviate flood risk and increase the biodiversity of the area. There will also be some changes to the layout of some roads in Neepsend.

The scheme is being delivered by Sheffield City Council through the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund and is part-funded by South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority.


Visitors will be greeted on site by a member of the scheme and walked through the project. As it is a civil engineering scheme based in the city centre, all elements can be viewed from the roadside so no PPE will be needed. Participants will be introduced to the scheme and have the chance to learn more about what the team are working on, while we are there. There will be a chance to ask questions about any part of the civil engineering work.
