Roads in Hillsborough that are for resident access only:
Park View Road
Hard Closures for Pedestrian Safety
For approximately 15 mins before mass egress of pedestrians from the site begins each night, Middlewood Rd (which is also covered under the TTRO) will be closed to ALL TRAFFIC other than trams for pedestrian safety. This means access to Middlewood Rd for anyone, including residents, will be ceased during this time for approx. 45 minutes.
If you are attending the festival, have you thought about how you are going to get there?
The best option is to either Park and ride and use the Supertram or head to a tram stop to get close to the venue, with trams coming very regularly it will take the stress out of trying to find parking in Hillsborough or in town. You could catch the bus, however in my opinion the Supertram 2 day ticket is likely to work out cheaper.
If you do want to catch the bus from Sheffield interchange there are a number of busses that run frequently.
TRAMLINES SUPERTRAM INFO:
Supertram are offering a Tramlines 2 day ticket you can buy on board the tram for just £8! This ticket will be available on Friday 19 or Saturday 20 July.
In order for Supertram to get Tramlines crowds efficiently moved out of the area after the event finishes,Purple Route trams are being deployed to support, providing additional capacity from Leppings Lane.
A shuttle bus will be operating between Herdings Park and Gleadless Townend as a replacement for these Purple Route trams (customers can connect with Blue Route there for onward travel).
Some Blue Route trams will also be diverted to Leppings Lane after the event finishes, meaning Malin Bridge will have no service for roughly 1 hour 20 mins.
After the event, head to Leppings Lane tram stop, as the Hillsborough Park stop will be closed.
