Nottingham - Bestwood Park Junction

The first stage of N.E.T. (Nottingham Express Transit) will see part of the trackbed of the Robin Hood Line shared between trams and trains. From 29th September 2001 the line was singled beyond Lincoln Street Crossing to make way for the tramway. This resulted in the closure of Lincoln Street Crossing and Bestwood Park Junction with control of the new signalling passing to an additional panel in Trent PSB.

Passing loops provided at Bestwood Park and Newstead.

The MR Lincoln Street Crossing SB was subsequently removed to Leicester to act as a training facility whilst the BR LMR Bestwood Park Junction was demolished.
