New Access Arrangements from 5th May

From Thursday 5th May Corporation Street, Stephenson Street and Upper Bull Street are access only, in preparation for trams operating to Grand Central.

On Corporation Street and Stephenson Street trams will operate in both directions but all other vehicles, including cycles, will operate in the direction indicated on the map. Cycle restrictions are signed.

It is essential that all deliveries to city centre locations along the tram route are carried out at the permitted times only and that all delivery vehicles park in designated loading bays and do not obstruct the tramway. Any vehicle that obstructs the tram could be towed away.
