Motorists and commuters face two months of disruption in Sheffield city centre as the next phase as tram rail replacement work takes place.

The final phase of tram rail replacement works this year between Cathedral tram stop and Netherthorpe Road will get under way in the second week of July following the visit of the Tour de France.

The work will take until mid-September to complete and will see West Street reduced to one lane of traffic towards the city.

For three weekends, the whole of West Street will be closed off to traffic.

Bus replacement services will be in operation for tram users.

Work currently taking place between Fitzalan Square and Woodburn Road as part of the £32 million project is expected to be completed by the end of this month in time for the visit of the Tour de France on July 6.
