Sheffield Railway Bridge

The government's offer to solve a long-running access dispute at Sheffield railway station has been accepted.
East Midlands Trains wants to install ticket barriers, but they would block a thoroughfare into the city centre.
The government offered £3m for a new bridge which would not be shared with rail passengers and would allow free pedestrian access across the station.
City officials accepted the offer but said the upgrading of a goods bridge and other options should be considered.
