Cyclists and tramlines

Tramlines are potentially dangerous. Bicycle-wheels can get caught in tramlines, and can slip on the metal. Cyclists who fall off risk being killed or injured by other traffic.

Where possible, use an alternative route.  You’ll often find:

either
a cycle-route or a cycle-path alongside the tram-route
or
an alternative parallel route via quiet roads and paths.

Nottingham Express Transit (NET) provides leaflets which show alternatives near the lines to Chilwell and Clifton. You can obtain the leaflets from the NET office in King Street, or download them from the NET website.

If there’s no convenient alternative to a road in which tramlines are embedded, follow the advice given in the leaflet and video on the NET website.

If you have an accident, and a tramline was a contributory factor, please:
