NET preview of Clifton line for community

“A special ‘preview’ event has seen some of the first members of the public to travel from Clifton to Nottingham city centre by tram.
“Community stalwarts and civic leaders were joined by lucky competition winners on the trip that set off from the new park and ride facility at Clifton South.
“On the way to NET’s Wilkinson Street depot, [seeing Clifton,] Wilford and The Meadows from a new perspective, before joining the existing network at the new Nottingham Station stop.”
