2734 (Tender) Supertram Embedded Rail Replacement Phase 2

SUBJECT: [2734] (Tender) Supertram Embedded Rail Replacement Phase 2


South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is seeking to appoint a suitably experienced provider of the above Services.  The estimated contract value is circa £12.5m.


The Executive is the owner of the Supertram system.  South Yorkshire Supertram Limited (SYSL) (a subsidiary of Stagecoach), operate the Supertram network, and maintain the majority of the asset for the Executive, under a Concession terminating in 2024.


The wear of the embedded rails had reached a condition on certain lengths of the network where it required replacement to prevent the flange of the tram wheels running on the bottom of the rail groove.  Accordingly between 2013 and 2015, approximately 15km of embedded rail was replaced.  It is proposed to complete the remaining 10km of replacement over the summers of 2018, 2019 and 2020. 

The works comprise the replacement of the remaining sections of embedded rail on certain sections of the Sheffield Supertram Network where wear has reached a critical condition. The Executive and South Yorkshire Supertram Limited need to ensure the system remains operable and in order to achieve this, the embedded rails need to be replaced.  The works are programmed to run between May 2018 and August 2020.
