fbb has previously blogged about the temporary timetables and diversions to cover relaying of track on the Sheffield Supertram network.

In the previous blog, fbb opined that the replacement route from Herdings Park to Gleadless by bus; then tram to Spring Lane; then bus from there, would prove too complex and lengthy for most. People would surely choose other bus services.
But there is one remaining mystery. This track relaying work was advertised as taking "about" 12 weeks. The timetable booklet is still available on-line.
So why does the ever accurate and ever helpful PTE publish this in its late Summer bank holiday arrangements leaflet?
Laving aside a possible PTE bog-up (what a surprise!) and the poor information at Gleadless, the replacement facilities, the printed publicity and the personal guidance to passengers were all excellent.
But then, by comparison, comes further news from Northampton!
