Sheffield to Rotherham tram-train pilot delayed further

The UK's first tram-train scheme, linking parts of South Yorkshire, has been delayed again.

The £58m pilot project will enable trams to run on existing train tracks between Sheffield, Meadowhall and Rotherham.

It was due to start in 2015 but was delayed until 2017.

Network Rail has now said the 2017 date is not possible and a "thorough review" is needed before a new launch date is announced.
