Nottingham
Nottingham Municipality has realized a modern LRT line in order to attenuate the car congestion in the city center and to contribute to a new economical development of this area, characterized by a massive industrial closure and conversion.
The north-south Line 1 route (about 14 km) links Nottingham city center to Hucknall and Bulwell suburbs, with an intermediate branch to Cinderhill and Phoenix Park. Hucknall-Wilkinson Park section runs in segregated lane alongside the so-called "Robin Hood Railway", while Cinderhill-Phoenix Park branch is set on an disused freight line. The central section (from Wilkinson Park to Station Street) runs on street, serving the very central Old Market Square, and important commercial and leisure attractions (Royal Center, Lace Market).
Besides 3 railway interchange stops (Hucknall, Bulwell, Station Street), some important park&ride areas (Hucknall, Moor Bridge, Phoenix Park, Wilkinson Street, The Forest) are located along the route.
