Nottingham’s contribution to the environment is set to increase in the coming years, following huge investments into transport services such as trams, greener buses and cycling.
Nottingham City Council is on a mission to make the city’s future even greener to create more sustainable transport.
The council will invest in electric vehicle infrastructure as well as rapid electric bus charging equipment. A proposal to create 82 gas-powered double-decker buses is also in motion, to create a low-emissions zone in the city centre.
More than £6m has been invested in the city’s cycle network to encourage more people to cycle, and more pedestrian-friendly streets are under development.
The National Highways and Transport Network Satisfaction Survey has awarded Nottingham first place, with Nottingham public transport giving the most customer satisfaction.
Nottingham City Councillor Nick McDonald, who is the portfolio holder for jobs and growth, told us a bit more about the prospects.
