Works are currently underway to strengthen Clayton Canal Bridge in order to accomodate NET's new tram line. This is due for completion by early May

Further tram works to move utilities and construct tram tracks will then take place in three phases early May 2013 and spring 2014.

To enable the works to progress safely, and to ensure the period of disruption is kept as short as possible, it will not be possible for through-traffic, including the W1 bus service, to travel along the sections of Lenton Lane where works are taking place. THere will also be various other temporary traffic restrictions in place.

In addition, while we are working on Lenton Lane, temporary traffic lights will operate on Gregory Street, between Clayton's Bridge and the White Hart junction, so works to move utility services and the main tram construction works can take place.
