Loving the pictures, but there's maybe too many construction pics on here. Took forever to load the thread!

Maybe try to break them into more posts so that they get spread out over more pages?

The bridge is lit up green (like the canal street bridge) which gives it a nice defining glow. Everything looks ready with the central reservation stripped out and boarded.

This is the rest of the route, through to Toton Ln, taken today.

Nottingham to launch 'Oyster card' system for buses, trams and trains.
By Nottingham Post.


Quote:
Tuesday, October 01, 2013.

By Alexander Britton
NOTTINGHAM will have an Oyster card-style system of paying for public transport before the end of next year, the Post can reveal.

The smartcard system is set be introduced by next November and will work on buses, trams and trains for the first time.

​Travel on trams in Nottingham will be much easier when the Oyster-style system is introduced
.People will be able to top up the cards online, from transport company offices and also from 88 new kiosks to be built in the city.

“A lot of buses want the correct change and things like that, so to just have an easy card that you top up would be great.”

If you travel on one operator, the fare will be capped at their daily ticket rate. For those who travel on multiple operators, the fare will be capped at the price of a Kangaroo ticket.

Other improvements include the building of 88 kiosks across the Nottingham area from next February, which will be used to sell tickets and top-ups for the new cards.

This will include 38 sites close to bus stops in the city and a further 50 at town centres and places with high passenger numbers like Trent Bridge cricket ground, the University of Nottingham and the Queen’s Medical Centre.

This move will be ahead of a full launch of the ‘Oyster’ system in November.

“These proposals come as Nottingham’s tram network is changing and expanding. with the tram operator preparing to introduce new self-serve ticket machines at tram stops. enabling passengers to buy tickets more quickly to board the city’s trams. “Overall, these new developments will help to consolidate Nottingham’s public transport network as among the best in Europe.”

Adding to the 330 bus fleet...

40 new double decker buses for NCT (Nottingham City Transport) for early in the new year. Over £6million has been invested on over 80 new buses for 2013 (March 13 - March 14). The new buses will have built in Wifi and e-leather seats as well.
