  • Supertram Rail Replacement Works 2020 - Area One

  • 22/04/2020 08:48:38 Posted:

    The tram rail replacement project continues in 2020, with work scheduled for sections track that were initially laid in the early 1990’s. The first area of work will take place at Hackenthorpe and Donetsk Way

    Area 1: Hackenthorpe/Donetsk Way - Monday 4 May to Friday 5 June 2020

    Area 1 works for 2020 are planned to start from Monday 4 May to Friday 5 June 2020 in the Hackenthorpe area around Sheffield Road, Donetsk Way and Birley Golf Course, affecting Blue and Purple tram routes. VolkerRail will carry out some evening works from Sunday 3 May but these will not impact on tram services.

    How will the works affect tram services?

    From Monday 4 May, trams will operate as follows:

    Blue Route will operate between Malin Bridge and Birley Lane only and will run a revised timetable. Birley Moor Road, Hackenthorpe, Donetsk Way, Moss Way, Crystal Peaks, Beighton/Drakehouse Lane, Waterthope Westfield and Halfway tram stops will not be served.

    Purple Route will operate the normal route between Cathedral and Herdings Park but at a new reduced frequency

    Yellow Route and Tram Train are not affected and will operate the current Covid-19 reduced timetable during this time.

    What are the public transport alternatives?

    Monday 4 May – Friday 5 June

    From Monday 4 May works will be taking place between Birley Lane and Halfway tram stops. The Blue Route tram will terminate at Birley Lane; therefore, tram stops between Birley Moor Road and Halfway will not be served.

    The latest advice from Government is that people should stay at home where possible and public transport should only be used for essential journeys. For those that do need to travel, including key workers travelling to and from work, bus services 120 or 80a are available as an alternative to the tram:

    • Service 120 runs between Halfway and the city centre and
    • Service 80a operates between Birley Moor Road and the city centre.

    To help provide essential travel options to key workers at this time Stagecoach will accept Tram Only tickets on their buses in Sheffield. Please note, the bus must be travelling in areas where the tram runs, and the following conditions apply:

    • Tram Only tickets can only be used to make similar bus journeys to those normally taken on the tram.
    • The ticket is not valid for journeys beyond these areas where the final destination could not be reached by tram.

    Halfway Park and Ride

    Halfway Park and Ride site will remain open during these works. Park and Ride will be free whilst these essential works take place. Customers can buy their travel ticket on board.
