Supertram timetables will change today as work on the Tram Train network goes on.

Trams on both the purple and yellow lines will stop at Valley Centretainment from today until about 4pm, and will be replaced by a dedicated bus between Attercliffe and Meadowhall Interchange.

The blue line between Halfway and Malin Bridge will be unaffected.

Network Rail is carrying out preparation work around Tinsley to connect the Supertram track to the train route to Rotherham in anticipation of the Tram Train launching in 2018.
