Supertram rail replacement works from Saturday 25 May

Rail replacement engineering works will be carried out from Saturday 25 May in Sheffield city centre with further works planned, in other areas of the tram network, over the summer.

These works form part of our ongoing maintenance programme and are critical to extend the lifespan of one the region’s best loved modes of transport. The new rail will give passengers a better travel experience - improving comfort and reducing noise in areas where tracks are currently worn - as well as reducing the risk of closure of the network on safety grounds.

Every effort has been made to minimise disruption but services will be impacted.

Normal service is expected to resume at start of service on Monday 03 June
