Notts tram extensions tendered in 2009

Contractors will be invited next year to bid for a £582 million Private Finance Initiative deal to extend Nottingham’s tram system.

The work will involve extending the exiting Nottingham Express Transit system, which was built by Carillion in 2004, out to Chilwell via the city’s Queens Medical Centre and to Clifton via Wilford.

Nottingham City Council today (6 March) published a prior information notice in the Official Journal calling for firms interested in the deal to take part in market testing on what its procurement strategy for the job should be.

It anticipates advertising the contract in early 2009, for award in summer 2010. The first trams are expected to be up and running on the extensions in 2013
