The opening of new lines as part of the Nottingham Express Transit Phase 2 is to be delayed into early 2015. The contractor Taylor Woodrow Alstom has experienced delays mainly due to the movement of utilities. The majority of construction works that affects local residents should be completed by the end of Summer.
NET Phase Two contractor Taylor Woodrow Alstom has today (Friday) confirmed that major construction works on Nottingham’s tram expansion project will be completed by the end of the summer.
Programme Director, Paul Harris explained: “There has been speculation recently that construction works might be unduly delayed until next year. Yes, the project has presented some challenges, but we are on target to substantially complete all key infrastructure works over the next two to three months and we are working towards handing the new lines over for passenger services in the first part of 2015.”
The Phase 2 extensions will see trams operating to Chilwell and Clifton on two separate routes.
