Magna Tram Train Stop and Park & Ride

Network Rail is developing the design for the new Tram Train stop and Park & Ride site at Magna to improve public transport connections between Rotherham and Sheffield.

The scheme proposes introducing a new Tram Train stop and Park & Ride facility on the existing network, connecting the Magna Science & Adventure Centre to the Tram Train network, addressing congestion, improving air quality and encouraging people to choose more sustainable travel options, such as Tram Train, tram, walking and cycling.

Works are due to start on site later this year with completion forecast in spring 2024. 

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.
