Today “Stop by Stop” returns to Nottingham Express Transit as we embark on a journey out to Toton Lane. Having previously covered the Clifton South line in this series we now head back towards the city centre and will start the review of this line on the first stop after the Nottingham Station viaduct, which for the Toton Lane line is Meadows Way West.
As we saw in the first section of this series the lines to Toton Lane and Clifton South split soon after they have dropped down from the viaduct over Nottingham Railway Station with that to Clifton South diverging at a junction on Meadows Way. But we continue straight on at that junction and head around Meadows Way which curves round as we approach the first stop on this line at Meadows Way West. Opening to the public on 25th August 2015 – along with the entirety of the Phase Two extensions – this is a pretty standard stop with everything you have come to expect from a tramstop on NET: shelters, passenger information displays, ticket machines, bins, information boards and lighting. The stop is located on a road with other traffic sharing the right of way with trams.
