Sheffield’s Supertram has lost almost two million passengers in the last year as a result of major engineering works, new figures have revealed.

The city’s tram system carried 12.6 million people during the 2013/14 financial year – down on 14.4 million in the 12 months previously.

A Department for Transport report said the figures had been affected by buses replacing trams during rail replacement work between July and November last year.
