Councillor Jane Urquhart at Nottingham City Council said she is "delighted" to have new trams on the city's network. She said:
We are delighted with the iconic design and look of the new trams; they are very much in keeping with NET's strong visual identity and the Council's vision for a world-class tram network.
Phil Hewitt, Chief Executive of Tramlink Nottingham, said:
The delivery of the first of the new trams marks a significant milestone in the transformation of Nottingham's tram network. When they start to appear on Line One next year it will provide our existing customers with a real taste of what's to come as we move towards an even brighter future for NET.
