Major work will begin today to extend Nottingham's tram network to Clifton. The work will begin on Ruddington Lane and will involve lowering part of the road. A section of it will be closed for six months from today.
The extension of the tram system is part of a multi million pound Private Finance Initiative to add tram routes out to Wilford, and Clifton with another to the Beeston and Chilwell in the south west. It's expected to be completed by late 2014
The council say the tram extension will encourage people to use public transport reducing congestion as well as bring investment and jobs.
