Bulwell Forest tram stop


Bulwell Forest is a tram stop on the Nottingham Express Transit NET light rail system in the city of Nottingham in the suburb of Bulwell It is part of the NET's initial system, and is situated on the long single line section between Bulwell and Hucknal tram stops that runs alongside the Robin Hood railway line Like all the other intermediate stops on this section, the stop has a passing loop with an island platform situated between the two tracks of the loop12

With the opening of NET's phase two, Bulwell Forest is now on NET line 1, which runs from Hucknall through the city centre to Beeston and Chilwell Trams run at frequencies that vary between 4 and 8 trams per hour, depending on the day and time of day34

The tram stop should not be confused with the former Bulwell Forest railway station, which was situated on the, now closed, Great Northern Railway's Nottingham to Shirebrook line, some 750 metres 2,460 ft to the south-east of the tram stop The Robin Hood line that passes alongside the stop was originally the former Midland Railway route from Nottingham to Worksop, but there has never been a railway station at the stop's location5

There is a road level crossing just to the south of the tram stop, and pedestrian access to the stop is from this crossing At the crossing, both tram and railway lines are protected by the automatic barriers The Springfield Retail Park, containing branches of Morrisons, Matalan, Wickes and Brantano, is adjacent to the tram stop167
