As part of the ongoing programme of improvements a number of stops across the Nottingham Express Transit network are going to see work commence in the next few weeks. The first stage of the work is being described as minor preparatory works and more extensive works will follow later in 2013. At the same time a new uniform has been revealed for staff on the trams.
Engineers are carrying out minor preparatory works at a number of stops and it is hoped that there should be little or no disruption to passengers. Work has already commenced at Shipstone Street, Radford Road and Noel Street and will move on to other stops in the future.
Meanwhile the new uniform now being worn by staff has apparently been met with a great response from passengers. The uniform is said to be a contemporary design in black, grey and a hint of green and has been introduced as part of an ongoing programme to improve the customer experience.
Darren Smith, Acting Operations Manager at NET, commented about the new uniforms: “We firmly believe the tram is a premium form of travel and, as NET grows, it will play an increasingly important part in Nottingham’s public transport infrastructure. The new uniforms are all part of plans to take our tram services to a new level and we certainly hope they create the right impression with the people who matter most – our customers. Our staff are really happy with their new outfits and many have said they’re getting plenty of compliments from customers who also appreciate the new look.”
