Environs

Pond Street (north/south) is west of the bus station and becomes Flat Street beyond the scope of this map next to the crossing and the main entrance which are shown at the top right of the diagram. Harmer Lane (east/west) is to the south and Pond Hill (east/west) is to the north.

Overview

This page shows the three rows of bus stands A and B, C and D and E extending south from the irregular-shaped main building. Traffic flows and pedestrian crossings between these stands are shown. The pavements leading south towards Sheffield Railway Station, plus the pedestrian crossings of Pond Street and Harmer Lane are also included.

Detailed Description

Starting from the top left-hand (southwest) corner of the page are the pavements to either side of Pond Street, leading towards the railway station. the junction of Harmer Lane and Pond Street is a T-junction with Pond Street (north/south) across the end of Harmer Lane (east). Traffic flows both ways along Pond Street, which is beside (west of) Stand A. There's a pedestrian crossing from the west side of Pond Street onto the pavement outside the entrance to the main building. A bus stop FS5 is shown on the west side of Pond Street, about in the middle of the top of the map.

Route B

Route B is the roadway serving Stand B, traffic flows north. There are three pedestrian crossings leading east onto a planted area, the south crossing is on Harmer Lane, the north crossing is just south of the main building, whilst the third is about in the middle of the stand.

The Planted Area

The planted area runs north/south between routes B and C. Route C lies west of Stand C, traffic flows south. Again, there are three pedestrian crossings from the planted area to this stand.

Stand C

This can be reached from Harmer Lane to the south, the three crossings from the planted area to the west, the crossing from the main building at the north end or the two crossings from Stand D and E to the east. Note that the traffic flows east from the entrance or Route B before turning south into either routes C or D. The crossing of route D is just outside the exit from the main building.

Route D

This lies between stands C and D, traffic flows south. There are three crossings equivalent to those mentioned above.

Stand D and E

This leads directly south from the main building onto the pavement of Harmer Lane.

Route E

This lies along the east side of the Bus Station. Traffic flows north from Harmer Lane, past Stand E before turning right (east) through the exit just south of the main building. A taxi point is indicated outside the main building, on the north side of the exit route.

The Main Building

This is shown along the right-hand (north) of the page. The main entrance leads east from Pond Street. A set of stairs is shown to your left (north) of the entrance, outside the building, in an area which extends (north) beyond the scope of this page. The north wall of the building leads east along the south side of Pond Hill, before curving right ( (south) into a recess. The building then juts back (north) before retreating along the east side. The east side juts out in two stages before veering southwest along the north side of the exit, towards Stand E.

South of the main entrance, the building jhuts west before turning south then east along the north side of the bus entrance from Pond Street. The building retreats north in two small stages before curving south along Stand D.

Traffic Flow

There is two-way traffic along Pond Street and Flat Street. An entrance leads east from Pond Street, just south of the main building. From here, traffic can turn right (south) into routes C and D before continuing into Harmer Lane.

From Harmer Lane, traffic can turn north into Routes B or E. From Route B, traffic turns right (east) then south along either routes C or D towards Harmer Lane. From Route E, the traffic turns right (east) south of the main building, beyond the scope of this map.

External doors to the Main Building and bus stands are automatic, whilst internal doors, near the toilets and those between the Main Building and Stand D and E are manual but normally open.
