Services on Stagecoach Supertram’s Blue route (and the Purple route fully suspended) will be partially suspended on Saturday 6th October to allow overhead line works to take place. The work will start from 1930 and will see Blue route trams running Malin Bridge to Sheffield Station and from Gleadless Townend to Halfway. There will be buses from Herdings Park to Fitzalan Square.
During this suspension work will be undertaken on the overhead at Manor Top. The need for this work has only recently been discovered as part of Supertram’s standard maintenance routine and requires a full 11 hour possession hence the short notice of the closure and why it couldn’t take place during the recent rail replacement works.
It is anticipated that all the work will be completed in time for a normal Supertram service to resume at the start of Sunday 7th October.
