Trams could be mothballed without extra funding - Mayor

Local Democracy Reporting Service

Sheffield MPs have written an urgent letter to the government asking it to keep buses and trams running when emergency funding ends this week.

Supertram services in Sheffield and Rotherham could be mothballed if the government fails to step in with further resources, Sheffield City Region Mayor Dan Jarvis has warned.

Sheffield City Region bosses were given £1.3m in May to support the Stagecoach Supertram network following a massive reduction in passenger numbers due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Government intervention is set to end today and Mayor Jarvis has described shutting down the service as a "terrible situation" but it would come as a "last resort".

Labour MPs Clive Betts, Olivia Blake, Paul Blomfield, Gill Furniss and Louise Haigh have now intervened and written to Transport Minister Grant Shapps.

Mr Betts, who recently led a review of buses, said: “Keeping buses and trams running is absolutely essential to allow key workers to get to work.

“Having bus operators go out of business or the tram stopping running will cause short term chaos in essential services and in the longer term add to the problems of congestion, pollution and climate change.

“The Government’s financial help so far has been welcome and essential but it must continue.”

Sheffield Brightside & Hillsborough: Labour hold

Gill Furniss has been re-elected as the MP for Sheffield Brightside & Hillsborough, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Hannah Westropp by 12,274 votes, 6,869 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Johnny Johnson of the Brexit Party came third and Liberal Democrat Stephen Porter came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.4 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 40,000 people, 57.1% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the six candidates, Stephen Porter (Liberal Democrat), Christine Gilligan Kubo (Green) and Shane Harper (UKIP) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
