Nottingham City Council has approved GBP200,000 (US$261.399) funding for a feasibility study of an extension to the city's tram network. 

The study will consider potential new routes, including an extension from the terminus at Clifton, to the south of the city centre, to a new 3,000-home housing development; an extension to a planned high-speed rail station at Toton and to sites to the east of the city, such as Gedling Colliery, Netherfield and Gamston.

The existing 32km network is operated by Tramlink, a consortium comprising Vinci, Alstom, Keolis, Wellglade, Meridiam Infrastructure and InfraVia.
