Perhaps the tram was being driven by the Duke of Edinburgh!

I reckon you're next Fynger when they reinstall the route to Ripley! Then theres the GCR tunnels from weekday cross to gregory blvd and from there they can shut down all the shops in Sherwood maybe e

Trams would be ok if they had their own tracks, away from the public highway, so that if they broke down, as they do regularly, the traffic flow would be unaffected.. They could be called trains - or

thats handy, not a lot of journalism to do in the future, just need to copy and paste that article, job done.

The original proposal was for Nottingham trams to use part of the Robin Hood railway line to Hucknall

Until Bulwell Depot was demolished the old tram tracks in the depot up to the roadside were still intact, no point ripping them out if they aren't on the highway ! Serves no useful purpose at all.

If I don't have a car why should I help pay for the roads you run your car on?

I thought that is what the road fund license (road tax) was for, plus the tax on petrol.

I don't think car tax and petrol tax go specifically towards roads

But it damm well should do, if it did, we would have the best roads in the world methinks...
