SL1 service disruptions

As part of the continued rail replacement works on the Supertram network,  there will be diversions in place as no trams will be serving Middlewood between 26th May and 17th June.   Please see below for details regarding diversions and shuttle buses:

Saturday 26th May - Mon 28th May inclusive:

 Due to tram line replacement at Middlewood,  Middlewood Road will be closed to traffic. 

The SL1 and SL1a will not be able to serve Middlewood Park and Ride, and will operate between Oughtibridge and Hillsborough Interchange  via Worrall. Buses and trams will continue to link at the normal frequency at Hillsborough Interchange.

The timetable for SL1 and SL1a   buses at Hillsborough can be found here

We will also be operating service SL1b  as a connection between Hillsborough and Oughtibridge (early morning/evenings only). This service will run between Hillsborough Interchange and Oughtibridge on the same route as service 57.

Tuesday 29th May - Sunday 17th June inclusive:

 From 29th May, Middlewood Road will re-open with some road works, but the Tram will continue to terminate at Hillsborough Interchange as work on the track continues. 

The SL1 and SL1a will run the same diversion as above between these dates, however there will also be an additional link bus (the Y1 service) to connect Hillsborough and Middlewood Park and Ride via the follow loop:

  • Hillsborough Interchange
  • Worrall Road
  • Stockarth Lane
  • Middlewood Road
  • Middlewood Park and Ride
  • Hillsborough Interchange via Middlewood Road

You can download the Y1 timetable here.

There will be no trams serving Middlewood during this period and therefore buses and trams will continue to link at Hillsborough Interchange.

Please note that the SL1B service will not continue to run during this time. 


From Monday 18th June normal service will resume
