Brighter station entrance planned
Sheffield station
Five million people use the station each year
Over 6m of government money is to be spent improving the area outside Sheffield's railway station.

The Sheaf Street roundabout will be removed in order to reduce traffic delays and a new pedestrian access to Sheffield Hallam University built.

Taxis will be moved from the station forecourt and relocated nearby and the area pedestrianised.

It will also be made easier to transfer to local bus services. The work should start next month.

Transport Minister Tony McNulty said: "When the re-development project is completed, it will bring real benefits to passengers, providing local people and visitors with a modern and welcoming entry point to the city."
