Tram disruption for track maintenance works

Nottingham Express Transit (NET) will be conducting essential engineering and maintenance work to tram tracks this May, with customers encouraged to check affected routes before travelling.

 

Taking place on 18 and 19 May, the work includes improvements to the tracks and infrastructure at NET’s David Lane stop, and forms part of a range of ongoing upgrades to enhance safety and reliability across the whole network.

During the two days there will be no service between Phoenix Park and Wilkinson Street, as well as between Bulwell and Wilkinson Street. To minimise disruption, a tram replacement bus service will run between Wilkinson Street, Phoenix Park and Bulwell Bus Station, also stopping near to Basford, David Lane, Highbury Vale and Cinderhill. Normal tram services are set to resume on Monday 20th May.

Trevor Stocker, NET Head of Operations, said: “We’re committed to providing a safe and reliable mode of transport for all our customers, and these upcoming trackworks are a key part of that. This May, we’ll be replacing parts of the track around the David Lane stop and upgrading elements such as the critical point infrastructure at Highbury Vale, which helps to keep the network running smoothly.

 

“Our teams will be working hard to ensure these essential works will be completed on time, so we can resume normal service on Monday 20th May, ready for the working week. For those looking to travel over the weekend, our tram replacement bus service will cover much of the route affected, and alternative travel arrangements can be made by using our park and ride services at either the Wilkinson Street or Forest tram stops.

 

“As always, we apologise for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank everyone for their co-operation during this time.”
