Essential works to affect Supertram network over next two weekends

17/09/2020

Essential works on sections of the Supertram network between Cathedral and Hillsborough will affect the Blue and Yellow routes on the weekends of 19/20 September and 26/27 September.

To minimise disruptions, dedicated tram replacement bus service Y1 will run between Middlewood Park and Ride and Commercial Street, in the city centre, connecting passengers to the tram network at Fitzalan Square. The service will run up to every 12 minutes on Saturdays and 20 minutes on Sundays.  Timetables will be available at: https://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/en-gb/newsupdates/rail-replacement. For Malin Bridge, customers can use services 81 and 82 or nearby services 52a, 61 and 62 as alternative travel options to the tram.

The Yellow route will operate between Meadowhall Interchange and Cathedral only to a revised timetable. West Street, Netherthorpe Road, Infirmary Road, Bamforth Street, Hillsborough Park, Leppings Lane and Middlewood Park and Ride tram stops will not be served.

The Blue route will operate between Donetsk Way and Cathedral only to the current revised timetable. Malin Bridge, Hillsborough, Langsett/Primrose View, Shalesmoor, The University of Sheffield, City Hall, Moss Way, Crystal Peaks, Beighton/Drakehouse Lane, Waterthorpe, Westfield and Halfway tram stops will not be served.

The Purple route and the Tram train service will not be affected.

These works to repair concrete track slabs will be carried out in addition to planned rail replacement works currently underway in the Crystal Peaks area. Together these essential works will ensure that South Yorkshire continues to benefit from a safe and reliable tram network for years to come.
