Bridge on the move in project milestone
WORK to start moving the first section of a bridge that will carry trams over Nottingham Station took place overnight.
The movement of the steel structure, which will be known as the Karlsruhe Friendship Bridge, marks a milestone in the project to extend the tram lines to Clifton and Chilwell.
Measuring 104 metres long and 14.5 metres wide and weighing 1,100 tonnes, the bridge is being built in two sections. The first half has been built on top of four temporary towers at a height that will allow it to be slid over Queens Road into its final position over Nottingham Station.
A team of up to 30 will manoeuvre the bridge from a compound in Crocus Street 50 metres over Queens Road towards the railway station.

The bridge will be moved into position from 8pm to 6am over the next four nights.
Once the first half of the bridge is positioned over Queens Road, there will be room in the Crocus Street compound to construct the second half of the bridge. When this work is complete, the bridge sections will be joined together and pushed over the station.
