Nottingham Express Transit Wilkinson Street depot

Control room at the depot. In the background banks of screens show pictures from the many CCTV cameras overlooking stops and track. At the desk in front is seated the Duty Manager (on the left). The control room is linked to all stops via public address and emergency alarm systems, has direct lines to Fire, Ambulance, Police, Traffic Control and Network Rail, and can communicate with tram drivers via radio. The Duty Manager is able to monitor and, if necessary, take control of traffic junctions on the tramway, and can operate substations and isolate sections of the overhead power supply from his computer terminal
