Drop-in sessions for the tram works in Clifton

Two drop-in information sessions about the tram works in Clifton will be held for local residents and businesses over the next couple of weeks.

The sessions provide an opportunity for people to find out about forthcoming works on Southchurch Drive and ask questions of the project team.

Drop-in sessions will be held at the Clifton Cornerstone on Southchurch Drive as follows:

  • Thursday 28 February          5 – 7pm
  • Wednesday 6 March             4 – 6pm

The works on Southchurch Drive, which involves completing utility diversions, installing tram tracks and building tram stops along the section of the route, will mean that parts of the road will be closed to through-traffic including buses, and access restricted on other parts, for eight months from Monday 11 March.

The sections of road that will be closed on Southchurch Drive will be between Swansdowne Drive and Green Lane. Additionally, only residents and access will be allowed between Farnborough Road and Rivergreen. Small scale works will also take place on Southchurch Drive between Green Lane and Farnborough Road.

During the works, access to properties, shops and other facilities will be maintained, and all shops, including the Clifton Market, will be open as usual.

Signed traffic diversion routes will operate for traffic, and most bus services will travel along diversion routes, but operate to their existing timetables. 

Chris Deas, Nottingham City Council’s NET Phase Two Project Director, said: “These drop-in events are one of the many ways people can get up-to-date information about the NET construction works. We hope as many people as possible come along to ask us questions.”

Once these works are complete, further works will be required on Southchurch Drive, between the junction of Rivergreen and Swansdowne Drive, and also where the trams will run on Farnborough Road. The public will be notified in advance of these works starting.
