Magna Tram Train Stop and Park & Ride consultation

We are working on proposals to improve public transport connections between Rotherham and Sheffield and connect the Magna Science & Adventure Centre to the Tram Train network.

The scheme proposes introducing a new Tram Train stop on the existing network with a new Park & Ride site, to address congestion, improve air quality and encourage people to choose sustainable travel options, like Tram Train, tram, walking and cycling.  

Scheme proposals:


The Magna Tram Train Stop and Park & Ride scheme proposals include:

  • Building two new Tram Train platforms at Magna Science & Adventure Centre, connected by an accessible footbridge with lifts and stairs, with passenger information, lighting, CCTV and shelters.

  • Introducing a new 100-150 space Park & Ride facility at Magna Science & Adventure Centre with disabled, bicycle and motorcycle parking bays, CCTV, lighting and vehicle control.
