Sheffield to Rotherham Tram Train costs rocket

The National Audit Office has published the findings from its investigation into the Sheffield to Rotherham tram-train scheme. In May 2012, when Ministers approved the programme, the Department expected Network Rail’s modification of the national rail network to cost £18.7 million and the tram-train scheme to be completed by December 2015. By December 2016, the cost of these works had quadrupled to £75.1 million and Network Rail’s project is now expected to be completed in May 2018.
