Stop by Stop Nottingham Express Transit: Clifton South line – Southchurch Drive North

This series where we are looking at tram stops on Nottingham Express Transit’s Clifton South line continues as we reach Southchurch Drive North.

The first half (in stops at least) of the Clifton South line is segregated from other traffic (except for a few road crossings) but from now until just before the terminus trams start to share the roads with cars and the first of these stops is on the gradient at Southchurch Drive North. But before we get the stop the tramway goes under the A52 and then crosses Fairham Brook ahead of snaking along a short stretch of Farnborough Road. It then arrives at Southchurch Drive North with two platforms either side of the road.
