A revised timetable will operate on those days, operator Stagecoach has announced, due to engineering works taking place on Network Rail's system.

Tram-train services will run as normal on other days, and other tram routes are not affected.

The tram-train pilot project finally began running between Sheffield and Rotherham in October, three years later than originally scheduled, and cost five times the initial budget of £15 million.
