Rail Replacement Area 1

16 May 2018

From Saturday 26 May – Friday 15 June 2018, no trams will run between Hillsborough and Middlewood.

The SL1/A will operate through to Hillsborough Interchange via Worrall Road and Dykes Hall Road for the duration of the works. Find the timetable here.

From 29 May the Y1 tram replacement bus service will also operate between Hillsborough Interchange and Middlewood travelling in a clockwise circle; out along Dykes Hall Road and Worrall Road then returning along Middlewood Road.

Middlewood and Leppings Lane will not have any services between 26 May and 28 May due to the closure of Middlewood Road. Please use SL1/a on these dates.

A normal tram timetable will apply to all services on the Blue and Purple route, and the Yellow route between Meadowhall and Hillsborough. The Yellow route will divert to Malin Bridge.

This is due to track replacement work taking place at Middlewood P&R and on Middlewood Road.
