A Local Transport Plan for Greater Nottingham was submitted to the Government at the end of July 2000.
It was jointly produced by the City and County Councils. The County has also produced a separate plan for North Notts.
The Greater Nottingham Plan is bidding for £82.7 million over the 5 years starting 2001/02. The City also expects to raise £7 million a year from a Workplace Parking Levy from 2004/05 onwards.
You can see the Plan in libraries or at the City (tel 915 5482) or County (977 2970). Copies cost £45. Or you can get it from the internet at http://utc.nottscc.gov.uk/trplan2.htm.
The Plan includes:
extending the tram system;
improving bus services;
public transport interchanges at district centres and key locations such as universities and hospitals;
improved rail services, with possible new stations including Ilkeston, Wollaton and Lenton;
road safety schemes, including safe walking and cycling routes to schools;
a Clear Zone to keep cars and lorries out of the city centre.
Only one major road proposal is included - £5.5 million already agreed for improvements to the Western Outer Loop Road. Junction improvements will also be made on the Ring Road.
