And we finally reach the end of this second part of our “Stop by Stop” series on Nottingham Express Transit with the tram terminating at Toton Lane.
We depart from Inham Road and cross over that road to allow us to run on the final stretch of line to Toton Lane. As we have been since departing from High Road – Central College (save for a few short stretches) we are on segregated track with this section seeing a unsurfaced footpath alongside which still allows us to continue our walk next to the trams. Often just before the stop trams will come to a stop at the signal waiting for the right of way to terminate. As we saw with the terminus at Clifton South, Toton Lane has three platforms on two platform faces with platform A and C on the right as we approach the stop and platform B on the left. Platform C is furthest from the buffer stops and not often used with both A and B used for departures, at times there will be two trams in the stop allowing plenty of recovery time in case of delays. As well as full canopies on the platforms and ticket machines the end of the stop also has The Platform Kiosk whose profits go to the Forever Stars charity. And a large Park and Ride car park is located here along with regular bus services.
- This is the last part of our second series of “Stop by Stop – Nottingham Express Transit” and we have now covered both of the new lines. We will return to Nottingham again in the future to complete the remainder of the network but next time in “Stop by Stop” we will be returning to the Blackpool Tramway.
