Clifton South On The Nottingham Express Transit

Clifton South tram stop is the Southern Terminal of Line 2 of the Nottingham Express Transit.

It opened on the 25th August 2015 as part of Phase 2 of the NET. These are pictures. I took on the opening day at the terminus.

Clifton South is a two platform terminus at a very large park-and-ride site. So even if the tram fleet get too small in the future, due to incesed usage, I would suspect that this terminal will cope for several decades yet.

I can’t get a detailed Google Map of the site, but this map shows its location with respect to the city and the A453, which runs to the west of the site.

The tram line crosses the River Trent on Wilford Bridge, which is at the loop of the River to the west of West Bridgeford.

My only feeling about this Park-and-Ride site, is that as it is so convenient and totally free, that say when a large sporting event is taking place in the City, the frequency of one large tram every ten minutes will not be enough at times.

But, at least the infrastructure is there to cope with more trams
