Track is now in place on several roads at the new Starr Gate tram depot, seen here on 27 October 2010. The rails in the foreground are the new running lines, with the depot sidings behind, as seen through the Heras fencing that surrounds the construction site.

New platforms are appearing all along the Blackpool and Fleetwood Tramway, including these at Lowther Avenue on the Bispham cliffs. They are part of the wholesale system refurbishment and will provide level access into the trams. Tramcar 711 heads south past the illumination displays as it leaves the original tramstop and runs through the as yet unopened platforms.

What a difference a year makes. The turning circle at Starr Gate is being relaid as part of the new tram depot construction work. Concrete troughs have replaced the old bullhead wooden sleepered track. [See image 25075 for the same view just one year earlier.]
