Nottingham City Council have heralded recent information events on Nottingham Express Transit Phase Two as a success with nearly 1700 people having attended them. The events were organised to allow people who live or work near the extensions to find out more about the project and what work would be undertaken when. It also allowed them to ask questions of the Council, Tramlink Nottingham and the Taylor Woodrow Alstom Joint
Chris Deas, Nottingham City Council’s Project Director, said: “We would like to thank all those people who took time to attend this round of drop-in sessions. We will host future information events at key stages as Phase Two, the project to extend Nottingham’s tram
system, develops and will of course continue to liaise with people and businesses directly affected by the works. Not only were the sessions a good opportunity for people to find out more about the project and to have their questions answered by those involved, it was also an opportunity for the project teams to gather information from local people and businesses, which will help us to finalise designs and confirm our construction approach.”
Site clearance work started in certain areas of the extensions at the start of 2012 and will continue for the next few months before any main construction work commences ahead of a proposed opening of the lines to Beeston, Chilwell and Clifton in 2014.
