The Consultation on the Future of Supertram has now closed. Thank you for taking the time to give your views.
Why are we consulting?
Around £230m of investment is needed to allow Supertram to operate beyond 2024. The Consultation on the Future of Supertram sought the views of residents, the community, special interest groups, visitors and businesses across Sheffield City Region on three options for the future of the Supertram system:
- Maintaining Supertram as it is through ongoing essential repairs
- Renewing and modernising Supertram’s tracks, vehicles and information systems
- Exploring alternative options to Supertram.
What happens next?
The results of the consultation will help us to recommend an option for the future of the Supertram system. This recommendation will be considered by the Combined Authority before a bid for funding is submitted to the Department for Transport in 2019. The results of the consultation will be summarised in the report presented for consideration by the Combined Authority and in the funding bid.
