Supertram essential rail replacement works near Granville Road – Sunday 3 April 2022

South Yorkshire Supertram Limited (SYSL) is planning to carry out essential rail replacement works on sections of track where they cross over Granville Road. 

These works form part of their ongoing maintenance programme and are critical to extend the lifespan of the tram network and maintain the reliable, comfortable and safe level of service customers have come to expect.

The rail replacement works are scheduled to take place on Sunday 3 April and will affect Blue and Purple Route tram services. VolkerRail, the contractor carrying on the works on behalf of SYSL will also carry out preparation works over four consecutive nights (between the hours of 23:30 and 05:00 each night) commencing on the evening of Monday 28 March until Friday 1 April but these works will not impact on tram services. 

Letters have been sent to local residents and businesses around the affected work areas notifying them of the proposed works and any disruptions they may cause. 

How will the works affect tram services? 

On Sunday 3 April trams will operate as follows: 

  • Blue Route tram services will operate between Sheffield Station and Malin Bridge only. Granville Road/The Sheffield College, Park Grange Croft, Park Grange, Arbourthorne Road, Spring Lane, Manor Top, Hollinsend, Gleadless Townend, White Lane, Birley Lane, Birley Moor Road, Hackenthorpe, Donetsk Way, Moss Way, Crystal Peaks, Beighton/Drakehouse Lane, Waterthorpe, Westfield and Halfway tram stops will not be served.
  • Purple Route tram services will not operate.
  • Yellow Route and Tram Train services are not affected and will operate as normal.

Alternative bus services and ticket acceptance 

  • Customers travelling between Halfway, Manor Top and city can use Stagecoach service 120.

Valid tram tickets will be accepted on Stagecoach service 120 and on First bus services operating in the Herdings Park, White Lane, Gleadless Townend and Hollinsend Road areas. 

How is this being communicated to customer?
