RE: Arundel Gate Bus Gate
We are getting in touch to inform you about changes to vehicular access along Arundel Gate. To improve the air quality along Arundel Gate, we will be introducing a bus gate via an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO).

Why is the bus gate being implemented?
One of the locations in Sheffield with the highest levels of air pollution is Arundel Gate. It is well known that poor air quality can have a damaging impact on people’s health, so we need to act. We will be introducing a bus gate to reduce the number of vehicles using this stretch of road. Not only will this improve the air quality by reducing the level of emissions, but it will also make this area a more pleasant place to live, walk and cycle. The bus gate will be implemented through an Experimental Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) running for up to 18 months, on or around the 27th February 2023, to coincide with the launch of the Clean Air Zone. All enforcement signage will be covered during construction and only uncovered once the bus gate is live and operational. Updates on the confirmed go-live date will be provided on our website:

Where is the bus gate? What is the effect on vehicles?
The bus gate will be located just after the entrance to the Novotel Hotel. The bus gate will operate in one direction only, restricting northbound traffic from travelling beyond the access road to the Novotel Hotel, towards Norfolk Street. The bus gate will essentially prevent through-traffic from using Arundel Gate between Furnival Square roundabout and Park Square roundabout. Only buses, taxis, cycles, and authorised vehicles will be able to travel through the bus gate.
A turning area will be available at the access to the Novotel Hotel to allow northbound vehicles heading towards Norfolk Street to turn back and avoid inadvertently travelling through the bus gate.
There will be no bus gate in the opposite direction, with full access for all vehicles travelling between Park Square and Furnival Gate.

Is this a permanent change to the road network?
The bus gate will be introduced as an ETRO for up to 18 months, before a final decision is made on whether to make it permanent. During this time, people will be able to feedback on how they think that the bus gate is working.

Public feedback
Ahead of the bus gate being installed, Sheffield City Council wants to give local people the opportunity to feedback via a pre-scheme consultation. Details of the scheme and the opportunity to feedback will be available via the Connecting Sheffield website where visitors can then click on the link for the Arundel Gate bus gate. This consultation will be in addition to the previous Connecting Sheffield: City Centre consultation that included details of the bus gate.
