Rail Milling and Rail Grinding - 23rd Nov - 12th Dec


Between the 23rd of November and the 12th of December, we will be carrying out rail milling and rail grinding across the network. All work will take place overnight after tram services end


Rail Milling - Rail milling is a maintenance activity which recently became available for light rail systems. An RRV machine (Road-Rail Vehicle, Linsinger / Vossloh SF-02 milling truck) is used which runs along the track and restores the rail profile which will help to extend the life of the rail. The machine operates between 3-5 km/h

More information on rail milling can be found here -Rail Milling

Rail Grinding - Unlike Rail milling which constantly moves along the tracks, rail grinding is localised work which involves using machinery which helps to remove any rail defects

Frequently asked questions


Q. Can I buy a ticket on the bus? A. No, you will need to purchase your ticket or scan your travel card before you board the bus

Q. How will I know which bus to catch? A. Don't worry, the double-decker bus is clearly highlighted as 'Tram Replacement bus' and will be stopping within the Forest and Wilkinson Street Park and Ride sites

Q. The tram says 'The Forest' or 'Wilkinson Street' on the front. Why does it not say 'Clifton South, Toton Lane, Hucknall or Phoenix Park'? A. The trams will display the correct terminus depending on the direction of travel. You will need to alight at The Forest or Wilkinson Street and use the tram replacement bus between those stops

Q. Can I pause my season pass during the works? A. I'm sorry, but we are not able to pause your season pass. We are running a full service but please allow for some extra time to complete your journey

Q. Will the bus/tram still go to the Noel Street/Beaconsfield Street or Shipstone Street stops? A. No, we do not have a tram or bus operating along Noel Street or Shipstone Street, but it's only a short walk to the tram or bus stops. See the tram shelter for further information and route maps

Q. Can I board the bus if I'm in a wheelchair? A. The buses are fully DDA compliant and will have the usual bus spaces to allow for wheelchairs or buggies. Wheelchairs will have priority and we ask that any pushchairs or buggies are folded up if necessary to allow wheelchair access

Q. I use a mobility scooter. Can I board the bus? A. I'm sorry, but if you usually make your tram trip on a mobility scooter, we will not be able to carry you between Wilkinson Street and the Forest. A short mobility scooter journey between these stops will allow you to continue your journey by tram

Q. Can I use my tram ticket or pass on any other buses or trains during the works? A. No, only the tram replacement bus between Wilkinson Street and the Forest will accept your ticket or pass

Q. I didn't know about the works. Can I have a refund on my ticket? A. Unless we have a further disruption, we will not be able to refund your tram ticket as we are running a full service to all destinations with only minor differences to our timetable
