In Pictures: Supertram puts on an intensive service for the Tour de France

On Sunday 6th July the world famous Tour de France visited Sheffield with the second leg of the cycling race ending in the South Yorkshire city. Throughout the day Stagecoach Supertram operated an intensive service which saw all of the trams in use with the exception of 108. Trams on the Blue route were diverted to run between Halfway and Meadowhall via the city centre with Purple route trams running between Herdings Park and Malin Bridge whilst Yellow route trams continued to operate between Middlewood and Meadowhall but at a higher frequency than normal.
