now is the time to run the tram from Herdings to Jordanthorpe Meadowhead Lowedges and Bradway makes sense to me

 

Im sure there could be space made for a tramline down Bochum Parkway and continue to Meadowhead roundabout.

I've seen this suggestion before, but I don't understand why anyone would want to sit on tram from Meadowhead or Low Edges taking the long route to town via Manor Top and Norfolk Park, instead of getting a bus straight down the A61. Or more likely, just driving instead.

I’d much rather sit on a tram along that longer route, than be on a bus on the other route. More comfortable and less traffic hold ups.

Evening all, my friend has just informed me that the NEXT store at Heeley Retail Park is now closed - I'm assuming it's due to the forthcoming opening of the St James' retail park at Meadowhead.

 

Does anyone know if any other units at Heeley will be closing? Or what will be taking their place(s)?

That's a shame, but I'm not surprised. Trade was bound to have been affected by the never-ending roadworks outside, and as you say the new retail park at Norton will soon be open. But to answer your question, sorry no I've not heard anything.

Apparently, part of the reason is because Heeley Retail Park has just been sold for £18million and the new owners have put the rents up. If putting the rents up leads to shops moving out then it's not really a wise move in my eyes.

Currys was recently refitted so doubt they will be moving.

 

I worked on the park in its early days and it took a very long time to get established and will never be one of the busiest but it does ok now.
