Upgrade for NET fleet

The ‘Incentro’ trams have been in service since the Nottingham network opened in March 2004.

They were also refurbished in 2013/2014, but the work goes further this time to include a major mechanical overhaul, replacement of floors and all interior fittings, and improved access for passengers with disabilities.

Tram No. 203 was the first to be upgraded, and the rest will follow over the course of 2019 in a rolling programme.
