Consultation on the future of Supertram

images

24 September-5 November 2018

The Consultation on the Future of Supertram has now closed. Thank you for taking the time to have your say. 

Why was there a consultation?

Around £230m of investment is needed to allow Supertram to operate after 2024, when the current concession agreement ends. For this reason, we are developing a business case. The consultation sought the views of residents, the community, special interest groups, visitors and businesses across Sheffield City Region on three options for investment in the current Supertram system: 

  • Maintaining Supertram as it is through ongoing essential repairs
  • Renewing and modernising Supertram’s tracks, vehicles and information systems
  • Exploring alternative options to Supertram.

Your views on the future of Supertram

Nearly ninety-percent (88%) of local residents, businesses, visitors and community groups responding to the Consultation on the Future of Supertram would like to see the renewal and modernisation of Supertram’s tracks, vehicles and information systems. 

Of the 2,888 responses received, 67% also supported maintaining Supertram as it is through ongoing essential repairs. 78% opposed exploring alternative transport options to Supertram, such as a dedicated bus system.

What happens next?

The results of this consultation will help us to recommend an option for the future of the Supertram system.

This will be presented in a business case that will be considered by the Combined Authority and the Department for Transport. Further consultation will be held during the next stage of project, when the business case is complete.
