Essential maintenance work on tram tracks in the heart of Nottingham will see the introduction of a special timetable on part of the network for one day, Sunday, April 28.
A normal Sunday service will operate across most of the network, although a temporary shuttle bus will run between Nottingham Station and Old Market Square, and the Lace Market tram stop will also be closed for the day.
Mike Mabey, NET Head of Operations, explained: “The tram is at the heart of the city’s transport network, and from time to time we have to carry out essential maintenance work.
“This ensures we can continue to provide a safe, comfortable and reliable service to customers.
“We try to do this at quieter times of the year, and every effort is being made to keep any inconvenience to an absolute minimum with engineers pulling out all the stops to complete the work in a day.”
During the spring works – which will see repairs to tracks on one of the busiest sections of the network – trams will run as normal between Nottingham Station, Toton Lane and Clifton South as well as Phoenix Park, Hucknall and Old Market Square.
Additional NET staff will also be on hand at key locations to offer customers advice on how best to complete their journey if they’re travelling through the city centre.
Mike added: “We would advise customers to allow a little extra time for their journeys and apologise for any inconvenience whilst we carry out this planned maintenance that’s vital to the safe and efficient running of the network.”
Full services are set to resume on Monday, April 29 and further information can be found at tram stops. There will also be regular updates on social media.
