We’ve all done it, added an extra letter into a word and not realised before publishing it but at least when you write something for a website you can quickly make the amendment hoping nobody has noticed. Unfortunately for Nottingham Express Transit this isn’t an option as one of the new tramstop signs has seen a rather unfortunate mistake with the stop at Chilwell Road receiving a sign with an extra l making it Chillwell Road. But at least the local media haven’t noticed and made a big deal of it, oh hold on maybe they have!
It is certainly unfortunate that nobody noticed before the sign was installed that there was a spelling mistake but at the end of the day it isn’t the worst thing which has ever happened although you would think that the world was about to end judging by some comments on the internet. Apparently this sign shows how incompetent Nottingham Express Transit are but in reality it is just a mistake – and everyone makes mistakes at some point don’t they?
On the positive side at least signs are being added to the stops on the Phase Two extensions another sign that it shouldn’t be that long until we are seeing public services on the extensions.
* Meanwhile NET drivers are now enjoying the benefits of new driver simulation software at the depot which it is hoped will speed up the familiarisation process to allow services to commence sooner rather than later on the extensions.
