Area 2 Rail Replacement - 23 June to 8 August 2018

11 Jun 2018

From Saturday 23 June – Wednesday 8 August 2018, no trams will run between Birley Lane and Halfway.

The B2 replacement bus will operate between Birley Lane and Halfway on one of four routes. These routes can be found in our Area 2 leaflet.

The B2 bus will not be able to serve Birley Moor Road, Hackenthorpe or Donetsk Way tram stops directly on certain dates due to the work site locations and traffic diversions. Walking routes to the closest alternative bus stop are shown here.

A normal tram timetable will apply to all services on the Yellow and Purple route, and the Blue route between Malin Bridge and Birley Lane. 

Halfway Park and Ride will remain open for the duration of the works.

  • Area 3 Gleadless Townend - Herdings Park 10 August to 19 August 
  • Area 4 Gleadless Townend - Halfway and Gleadless - Herdings Park 25 August to 2 September and 8-9 September 
  • Area 5 Donetsk Way - Halfway 10 September to 14 September
