  • history : Sheffield Supertram : TheTrams.co.uk
    in a Parliamentary Bill deposited in 1985 In 1986 SYCC along with the other metropolitain county councils was abolished SYPTE remained controlled by a Passenger Transport Authority SYPTA comprising members from each of the four borough councils The highways authority function passed directly to each of the councils so for Sheffield the City Council SCC became the resposible for highways SYPTE continued to support the development of light rail while SCC was slightly less enthusiastic As a result alterations were made to the proposals to make the project more palatable to SCC This plus public consultation exercises and changes in the way that such schemes are funded delayed the start of the project but in 1991 construction finally started The first line to be built was Line Two to Meadowhall which after leaving the city centre is entirely off street Much of the route shares and alignment with a freight railway line and construction was relatively trouble free This was not so true for the street running sections of the other two lines however the resulting in traffic disruption was a source of some frustration to local residents and traders Supertram opened in stages in 1994 and 1995 The first section to open was the line to Meadowhall 21 3 94 Fitzalan Square Meadowhall 22 8 94 Fitzalan Square Spring Lane 5 12 94 Spring Lane Gleadless 18 2 95 Fitzalan Square Cathedral 27 2 95 Cathedral Shalesmoor 27 3 95 Gleadless Halfway 3 4 95 Gleadless Herdings Park 23 10 95 Shealesmoor Middlewood and Malin Bridge Supertram was initially run by South Yorkshire Supertram Limited SYSL a company formed and owned by SYPTE At the end of 1997 SYSL was sold to Stagecoach a major bus and rail operator for 1 15 million With SYSL Stagecoach gained the concession to operate and maintain the tramway until 2024 SYPTE retains ownership of the track and infrastructure Bus deregulation and competition 1986 the year in which SYCC was abolished saw a major change in local public transport in the UK Deregulation of bus services saw an end to local authorities direct control of bus service provision local bus companies now decided where when and how often to run services with profit the prime objective and thus companies were free to compete with each other The new role of local authorities SYPTE in South Yorkshire was to fill the gaps typically in the evenings and on Sundays with subsidies meted out via competitive tendering as well as information provision upkeep of bus stops and bus stations and what little strategic development was possible in this new way of working Public bus undertakings were also privatised which in South Yorkshire meant that SYPTE s bus operations became South Yorkshire Transport Limited was sold to a management buy out and subsequently became part of the First Group Light Rail was always envisaged as the core of an integrated transport network with bus complimenting tram services and integrated ticketing Deregulation and privatisation was a disaster
