Bus services will need to be diverted.A revised service will be in place for the duration of the works to ensure that customers travelling from Oughtibridge, Stocksbridge, Unsliven Bridge and Deepcar can continue to travel to
Middlewood Park and Ride to connect with Supertram, and onto Hillsborough and Sheffield by bus.
Whilst buses travelling along the diverted route will have longer journey times, we will continue to run buses to the same frequency as normal. We will aim to maintain connections with Supertram as best we can during this time.
We apologise for the delay and inconvenience the road closure will cause. We are grateful to Yorkshire Water for providing funding to cover the additional buses required to run the diversion routes. We have worked closely with Yorkshire Water, SYPTE and Sheffield City Council to try to ensure that bus users are inconvenienced as little as possible.
Service 57 will operate between Sheffield and Wharncliffe Side, Moor Hall Lane (this is where the road is closed so buses cannot run any further).
There will also be additional service 57 journeys running as a shuttle bus to connect Wharncliffe Side and Oughtibridge with Middlewood Park and Ride.
Service 57 (operating Sheffield to Wharncliffe Side) will depart from Sheffield at the same times as normal but journeys to Sheffield will operate a few minutes EARLIER, so please check timetables.
Customers wishing to travel towards Stocksbridge, Deepcar and Unsliven Bridge should connect with SL1 and SL1a services at Middlewood Park and Ride.
From Middlewood Park and Ride, service SL1 and SL1a will run non-stop via Leppings Lane, Halifax Road, Penistone Road and Stocksbridge bypass to Deepcar, Carr Road. Buses will then complete their usual route around Stocksbridge.
Service SL1 will operate clockwise from Deepcar, Carr Road (King and Miller) via Carr Road, Coal Pit Lane and Cedar Road, Manchester Road returning non-stop to Middlewood Park and Ride via the Stocksbridge Bypass and Penistone Road.
