The track

The network is 29 km (18 miles) long, with 60 km of track. It features two types of track; tramway track where either pedestrians or road traffic share the right of way, and balasted railway track when there are no such requirements. Tramway track consists of a grooved tramway rail set into a concrete base with troughs into which the rails are laid. Most of the track is on-street using 35G-section grooved tram rail, with BS11-80A 80lb/yd flat-bottom rail elsewhere. The railway track was supplied by British Steel Track Products of Workington and laid on sleepers consisting of concrete blocks with steel ties which gives a spring feeling when travelling on these sections. The track is laid on a bed of ballast which in turn rests on a prepared formation. Street crossings are usually laid with grooved tramway rails.


The overhead wiring

Supertram is powered through 12 electric substations and fed through 1.07 cm diameter overhead line equipment (OHLE) wire. The substations convert the 11 kV AC supply into 750 V DC supply into the overhead. The 12 substations are situated as follows:

  • Blackburn Meadows
  • Carbrook
  • Nunnery
  • Park Square
  • Arbourthorne
  • Gleadless Townend
  • Birley
  • Crystal Peaks, Ochre Dyke Lane
  • Hafway, Echington Way
  • University, Brook Hill
  • Langsett Road, Capel Street
  • Middlewood

The overhead line equipment depends on the location. If the tracks are close together, central poles with arms on each arms is used. If the tracks are further apart, poles on either side with span wire are used. With aesthetics in mind a minimum number of traction poles are used and whenever possible the wire is anchored onto neighbouring buildings. Supertram, Sheffield City Council and landlords were in talks to try and hide anchor points as much as possible and blend them into the structures. Sheffield City Council is the city council for the metropolitan borough of Sheffield in South Yorkshire, England. ...


The contact wires are twin cadmium copper ones, twin wires being necessary because of the high installed power rating of the trams (1 Megawatt).

The Woodhead Line was a railway line linking Sheffield, Penistone and Manchester in the north of England. ...


Operation

The rules of operation of Sheffield Supertram are similar to those of a traditional railway. The system was operated by South Yorkshire Supertram Operating Company, who employed the staff and operated the depot and signalling, and now by Stagecoach Supertram. Unlike normal trains, tramways can be operated without signalling, although block signalling is sometimes necessary on single-line section. On Sheffield Supertram, trams drive-on-sight so that the speed of tramcars permit them to stop if an obstruction is spotted ahead. The Sheffield Supertram is a tram network in Sheffield, England. ...


Signals, however, are used to give indications to tram drivers when running on-street and at street crossings. Because trams have priority at many places, it was necessary to give them different traffic light phases from motor traffic and therefore different types of indication have to be used from those applicable to motor vehicles. It was decided that tramways would not obey standard highway signalling but would have their own. Signals consist of white lights arranged vertically (for go), horizontally (for stop) and a cross (for caution). Two other light arrangement indicate a point direction at junctions. The five white lights are distinct from those of the standard road traffic lights or railway lineside signals.


Tramway signals

Junction signals

Points indicators are provided at junctions to indicate the route which is set through the points. At junctions where Supertram and train movements can conflict with road traffic, fixed signals are provided in addition to points indicators. A points indicator may only be passed if it displays the correct route indication for the tram concerned and, where fixed signals are provided, if both points indicators and fixed signals are set for the correct route.


Lineside signals give instructions or warnings to tram drivers. To distinguish them from normal road signs, they are diamond-shaped. The most common are speed restrictions which are in miles per hour. These are particularly necessary on road-running where trams travel along with road traffic.


The route a tram is to take is computer-controlled. The route is set on a device in the tram before a journey is started, and on approach to junctions a signal is sent from the tram to a device known as a VIS loop buried beneath the track. This automatically sets the points in the correct direction.


The Depot

The depot is located at Nunnery and occupies the former goods yard alongside the Sheffield - Lincoln railway line. It was designed and constructed by Balfour Beatty on 2.6 hectares of land and consists of a three-line workshop building, 6 stabling sidings, a turning loop, engineers sidings and sundry equipment. The main offices and reception, supervisor's offices, plant room, staff mess rooms, paint shop, first aid are on the first floor level on the South side of the building. The Southwest of the building is home to the Operations and Power Controller's office, where live control of the running of the service is monitored using SCADA, CCTV and radio contact. The depot substation is also located in the southwest corner, two 600 kVA transformer-rectifiers supply the tramway overhead and a 800 kVA transformer feeds the depot facilities.

In the workshop itself are two through-running lines (numbered 8 and 9) and line 10, a stub end. All lines have inspection pits and line 8 possesses a Hegenscheidt wheel lathe. This machine allows wheel turning whilst both sets of doors are closed. The wheelsets are turned in situ. High level access is provided on lines 9 and 10 for servicing of equipment boxes and pantographs. an automated washing machine is located on line 7.

Tramstops

Forty-six tram stops have been built to permit users accessing the Supertram. These are generally found to be 26.5 m in length and 3 m in depth and are of a network-wide standard making them easy to understand and use. The design incorporates recommendations made by the Cranfield Institute of Technology who studied ergonmics for both able-bodied and disabled users. Cranfield University is a UK University based on three campuses at Cranfield, Silsoe and Shrivenham. ...


Tram stops are elevated at 37.5 cm with a 1:20 slope. The platform edge comprises of a 60 cm wide and light coloured textured paving with strips of 40 cm wide edge warning tactile strip. Directional guidance tactile paving crosses the width of the platform to coincide with the tram door locations.


Outstanding structures

The Supertram network possesses a few remarkable structures. Two viaducts and one underpass are of interest: the two viaducts carry Supertram onto Park Square, one of them being a six-span viaduct, the other the bowstring steel arch Park Square Bridge. The underpass takes the tram underneath the busy A57 roundabout outside the University of Sheffield. Look up Structure in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... This article is about the edifice. ...

The fleet of 25 trams were built by Siemens-Duewag of Düsseldorf, Germany in 1992. After undergoing trials on Düsseldorf's Rheinbahn system, the trams were delivered to Sheffield via the Rotterdam-Immingham cargo ship route. The trams are bi-directional and composed of three articulated carriages, with a 40% low-floor area. All four entrances are at 42 cm low level which matches the height of the platforms, ensuring level access. Both low-floor areas possess limited seating together with space for pushchairs and wheel chairs. The high area is 88 cm high and can be found at the outer-end of both end carriages and in the centre carriage, they are reached from either two or three steps.

Beginning in September 2005, the trams' manual destination boards were changed to multi-colour LED signs conforming with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA). In January 2006 a project was started to refit and repaint the fleet. On 27 January the first of the refurbished trams was lauched at the Nunnery Depot. The new livery is similar to the Stagecoach bus livery, but the doors are painted orange to conform with the DDA. The driver announced destination messages have been replaced by recorded announcements which are clearer to hear than the muffled messages previously used. Three voices with local accents were chosen to record the destination messages on the three different tram lines. External links LEd Category: TeX ...

Ticketing

Until the Stagecoach takeover, ticketing was done via ticket machines provided by Abberfield Technology of Australia. These blue ticket machines dispensed adult single ride tickets, senior citizen concessionary tickets, and child concessionary tickets. As well as singles, the machines sold multi-packs at a discount. Fare tables were shown on the machines with the validity of the different prices. A Stagecoach West Scotland vehicle in the UK Bus corporate livery. ...


To travel, each ticket had to be validated in a yellow machine on the platform. The ticket defined the type of passenger and trip as tickets do now. On validation, an overprint was added, giving the tramstop code, time and date of validation, and the point of validation.


As the machines did not dispense change, nearby shop-owners were often asked for change to purchase tickets from the machines. There were also problems with macine reliability. When Stagecoach took over South Yorkshire Supertram it removed the ticket machines and began selling tickets on board. This meant improved staff presence on board and tickets could be systematically checked.

Railway Technology - Sheffield Supertram (943 words)
Sheffield in South Yorkshire is part of one of the UK’s largest conurbations.
The Supertram project in part owes its origins to the transport responsibility held by the short-lived (1974–1986) South Yorkshire County Council through its component body, the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE).
Supertram was initially run by SYPTE through its South Yorkshire Supertram arm, but this was sold to transport specialist Stagecoach in 1997.
Stagecoach Supertram: About Us (283 words)
Stagecoach Supertram serves the city of Sheffield with three light rail routes covering 29km (50% of the system is on street running with mixed traffic).
Supertram vehicles, which can easily carry 250 passengers, are perceived as providing a high quality experience to the vast majority of passengers.
It is the policy of Supertram’s management to operate a first class public transport system for South Yorkshire and our success is reflected in the fact that Supertram is now proudly exhibited in many of Sheffield’s promotional pages.
