With the aim of “Bringing Nottingham together”, the NET Phase 2 project was developed on the undoubted success of the existing 14km tramway linking Hucknall and Phoenix Park to the City Centre by delivering two further lines to Toton and Clifton.
Fulfilled under a 22-year Concession Agreement with Nottingham City Council, the further investment has seen the creation of dramatic new landmark structures, two major new park and ride sites, the provision of 22 new trams with improved service frequency and the introduction of new Smartcard ticketing technology.
Operational since August 2015 and more than doubling the size of Nottingham’s tram network, passengers now benefit from 32km of track and 51 tram stops, giving easy access to many of the area’s largest employers and educational establishments The system also boats the only tram stop in Europe that creates a direct link to a major hospital in the form of Queen’s Medical Centre.
Customer satisfaction remains at a consistently high level and the achievements of the system have been recognised year after year at the Global Light Rail Awards. This includes awards for Best Customer Initiative, Employee of the Year and Most Improved System.
Fulcrum provides General Management, Operational Management and Financial Management services to the project.
