Essential rail works to affect Supertram services over Bank Holiday weekend


Essential engineering works at Hillsborough Corner will affect Supertram’s Blue and Yellow route services over the Bank Holiday weekend (29-31 May).

From the start of service (around 5am) on Saturday 29 May, until the end of service (around midnight) on Monday 31 May, Blue route trams will operate between Halfway and Cathedral or Shalesmoor only. Yellow route trams will operate between Meadowhall and Shalesmoor only. There will be no trams running between Malin Bridge/Middlewood and Shalesmoor. Purple route and Tram Train services will operate as normal.

“Due to essential engineering works on the track at Hillsborough Corner, revised services will run on the Yellow and Blue routes during the Bank Holiday weekend. We’re reminding passengers to plan ahead and check before they travel.”, says South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive’s (SYPTE) Director of Customer Services, Tim Taylor.

While the works are taking place, valid Supertram tickets will be accepted on Stagecoach and First buses running in affected areas. Hillsborough Interchange will remain open but stand H1 will be closed and its services allocated to another stand.

“As some lockdown restrictions have eased, it’s likely that there will be more people using public transport, travelling to meet family and friends, to shop, eat out or see a film. To travel as safely as possible on public transport, remember to follow government advice to regularly?sanitise?your hands, wear a face covering unless you are exempt and keep your distance where possible. If you can, open a window?to increase?ventilation during your journey”, added Tim.

Some bus services in the area will also be affected by the works. Service updates, timetables and journey planning tools will be available at and by calling Traveline on 01709 515151.

Normal services will return on Tuesday June 1.
