    Tram network owner South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) and system operator Stagecoach Supertram are funding a major programme of rail replacement works on the network.

    The engineering work replaces worn out sections of the tram track and is essential to protect the city’s tram network for the future. The work being carried out will also be aligned with the planned tram train pilot project which is expected to be in operation by 2017, which will see a new tram train link, operated by Supertram, between Sheffield and Rotherham.

    Tram rail replacement works now complete until 2018!

    Supertram services return to normal today (Tuesday 25 August) following the completion of essential engineering work to replace sections of the track.

    Scheduled improvements to Sheffield’s tramlines concluded on Ridgeway Road on Sunday 23 August, a week ahead of schedule. Further rail replacement works are not expected to restart until 2018.

    Stagecoach Supertram is offering 21% or more off of selected fares from 29 August to thank passengers for their patience during the rail replacement project and to link with upcoming celebrations for the 21st anniversary of the network in October 2015.

    Supertram Managing Director, Margaret Kay, said: “We are very grateful to our many passengers who have been both patient and loyal to us during the rail replacement project. To say thank you and as part of our 21st anniversary celebrations we have some fantastic offers available over the next month. With 21% or more off selected tickets and our current £1 all routes Sunday offer, there’s a great deal available for all passengers.”

     Multi-million pound investment by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) and Stagecoach Supertram has seen engineers VolkerRail replace over three thousand metres of worn out track in the Park Square, Castle Square, Hillsborough, Sheffield Station, City Road and Gleadless Townend areas of the city this year. Over 12km of rail has been replaced in the past three years and over 22km will be replaced in total.
