Nottingham’s tram network will fall silent on Sunday as the nation marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice that ended the Great War.
At 11.00am, all tram services will come to a standstill, enabling customers and NET staff to observe the two-minute silence and reflect on the sacrifices made by the nation’s brave servicemen and women.
Mike Mabey, NET’s Head of Operations, commented: “As 11.00am approaches, all trams will come to a stop in a safe place. Announcements will be made across the network inviting customers to join us in paying tribute to all who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War and more recent conflicts.
“To show our appreciation of the dedication and heroism shown by members of the armed services, past and present, on Sunday we’re also offering free travel for veterans and serving Army, Navy and Air Force personnel. All they need to do is to show services ID.”
To make way for a remembrance parade on Sunday morning between 11.45am and around 12.30pm, some services through Old Market square may also be subject to minor delays and customers are advised to allow a little extra time for their journey.
