2019 sees the rail replacement project continue, replacing track that was initially laid in the early 1990’s. 

In 2018, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) appointed VolkerRail to carry out this phase of the engineering work. VolkerRail has extensive experience in track replacement, having carried out the previous works between 2013 - 2018.

Stagecoach Supertram will support the project by providing alternative transport arrangements to our customers whilst the works take place.
