Gallery 374: Nottingham Express Transit Phase Two


The trackbed between Meadows Way and Crocus Street is seen here with the consolidated base, bituminous top layer and reinforcement ready for the slip form paving machine to lay the concrete slab. This form of track laying is very different to the more usual 2 stage concrete slab formations used on most of the other UK systems and is being promoted by Alstom for this project. It is intended to be faster to construct and uses less concrete.
