Being right outside the town hall I'm not sure whether this is the right place for a tram stop.

Should be okay. Shouldn't get too crowded around there.

No, I don't believe so. Pinfold St and that road are going to be pedestrianised, hence the current roadworks redirecting roads.

Going from memory some time ago there was some debate about having a tram shelter or stop built onto the town hall, something to do with heritage old building , I think going by the new pics and road markings it looks to me might be single track on that section, im sure someone will correct me if need be if so thanks.

The trams will go up Pinfold Street and turn left, running along Paradise Street, in front of the Town Hall.

No trams will go up Hill Street.

However according to the map below showing the future layout of Paradise (see bottom right of picture) cars WILL still be able to go Northwards up Hill St (one way only) and turn left on to Paradise Street.

So I assume cars and trams will then share the same "road space" along Paradise St.
