Consultation drives Sheffield bus changes

  • Peak period services from Dore through to Hallamshire Hospital (current service 70)
  • Retained links from Derbyshire Lane to Woodseats and city centre (current service 19/20a)
  • Reinstatement of the SL2 Supertram link at Malin Bridge
  • Retained links between Grenoside, Foxhill and Hillsborough
  • Retained links between Firth Park Road and Burngreave
  • Service 42 and 70 to provide a 15 minute service between Arbourthorne Eastern Avenue and city centre
Sheffield Bus Partnership – made up of local bus operators, Sheffield City Council and South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) – undertook the network review as part of work to progress the public transport aims drawn in the SCR Devolution Deal to improve and sustain local bus services

UK: The first of seven Citylink vehicles for the Sheffield – Rotherham tram-train pilot project left Vossloh España’s factory near Valencia on November 18. Expected to leave the port of Santander on November 23, it is due to arrive in Southampton on November 28 before making the final leg of its journey by road, to arrive in Sheffield on December 1.

Ordered in 2013, the 37 m long vehicles will be designated Class 399. They are to be stabled at Stagecoach Supertram’s Nunnery Square depot, which has undergone modifications to accommodate them. Following testing, the first vehicle is due to enter service on the existing Supertram network by May 2016

A few more shots of Sheffield’s light rail system. Notable structures in the city centre are a viaduct, a bridge and a short tunnel. The tram also ventures up a steep hill to the south of the city centre. The tram map has been updated to show the as-yet unopened extension to Rotherham. Interestingly, although the extension is pretty big distance-wise, just two new stops will be added

£1.573 funding for future Supertram strategy
30 November 2016



UP TO £1.573 million is to be invested in the development of a strategy to shape long-term plans for Sheffield City Region’s Supertram system, following a successful bid to Government for support funding.

The Chancellor’s Autumn Statement confirmed that Sheffield City Region is one of only six English authorities to receive ‘Large Local Major’ scheme funding from the Department for Transport, which will enable network owners, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), to progress a business case for up to £230 million future investment in Supertram

Tram-trains on test in Sheffield
05 Apr 2017





UK: Non-passenger-carrying tests of the Class 399 tram-train vehicles have started on the Supertram network in Sheffield. Driver training is due to begin shortly, with passenger services on the existing tram network now expected to begin in mid-2017. Testing on the national rail network is currently expected to start next year, with tram-train services between Sheffield and Rotherham now planned for 2018.

Stadler Rail Valencia has delivered seven Citylink tram-trains since late 2015, under a contract awarded in 2013. The eventual service pattern would see three services per hour run from Parkgate Retail Park in Rotherham to Rotherham Central station, before joining the existing Supertram network via a new connection at Meadowhall South and then running to Sheffield city centre

Sheffield tram-train infrastructure work progresses
18 Apr 2017







UK: Work has started on the Tinsley Chord that will connect Sheffield Supertram with the main line network. The 400 m chord, which includes 160 m of new alignment, will enable tram-train services to run between Sheffield and Rotherham.

The Tinsley Chord is located near Meadowhall, the terminus of an existing Supertram route from Sheffield city centre. The tram-train project also involves electrification at 750 V DC overhead of a section of freight-only main line route. Infrastructure manager Network Rail will own, operate and maintain the main line portion of the route. It is designing and installing the interface between the tram and rail networks, which will be operated jointly with Supertram

Sheffield tram-train project quadruples in cost
July 04, 2017



BRITAIN’s National Audit Office (NAO) has published findings of an investigation into the Sheffield to Rotherham tram-train scheme, and has discovered Network Rail’s (NR) original cost has quadrupled, the cost:benefit ratio has plummeted and it will take longer to implement

The original cost of the project of £18.7m was estimated in May 2012 with the project expected to be completed by December 2015, however by December 2016, costs has increased 401% to £75.1m and the scheme is now expected to be completed in May 2018

That math does not add up. Maybe they mean costs increased 301%.

There's something pretty ludicrous about the costs. It's such a short bit of track.

This is kind of an irrelevant thing to say, but I like the livery of those trams. I know that it's actually a generic brand for stagecoach operated lines but it looks good.
