Nottingham Express Transport (NET) is building Phase Two of the Nottingham tram network, which will double Nottingham’s tram network. This will introduce two new lines:
Line Two: Nottingham city centre to Clifton
Line Three: Nottingham city centre, through Queen’s Medical Centre, University Park and Beeston, to Toton
The lines are expected to launch in summer 2015. For more information, visit the NET website.
Will these works disrupt my commute to and from University campuses?
As of spring 2015, most of the works to and around University facilities have been completed, and trams are now being tested through the area. However, you can check our dedicated Works affecting our campuses page, which is regularly updated with activity affecting travel to and from our campuses.
Benefits to University staff and students
Line Three of the new tram lines will pass through University Park Campus, directly linking University Park to Nottingham city centre. In addition to the number of bus services already running from University Park to the city centre, travel will be made even easier through the tram line. New tram stops will also be in place along University Boulevard, at the South Entrance to University Park, and adjacent to the Highfields Sports Ground.
Staff and students based at the Queen’s Medical Centre will also benefit, as the tram line will stop at the hospital. The tram line also extends to Beeston, a notable student area, and finishes in Toton.
The University has team up with NET to offer staff 15% off annual tram passes through salary deduction. Find out more
Tram safety tips
The tram operator is asking pedestrians, drivers and cyclists to 'Think Safe, Stay Safe' as testing starts on the new tram lines.
