Nottingham Tram footpath diversion notice. Way Clayton's Bridge (XML, Potlatch2, iD, JOSM, history) (canal bridge number 13A) over the Nottingham and Beeston Canal has been strengthened to carry the Relation Nottingham tram extension to Chilwell (close to the proposed HS2 Toton station). The tram contractor used this OpenStreetMap image to inform pedestrians and cyclists how to reach the canal towpath via a temporary diverted route.

Note that this use of the freely licensed OSM data and tiles should be improved copyright-wise.

Detailliert, aktuell und frei lizenziert.

  • italiano (edit): Le imprese edili britanniche hanno accesso a prodotti cartografici molto dettagliati dell'Ordnance Survey, ma quando si è trattato di mostrare una mappa su un avviso al pubblico, le persone che costruiscono la nuova linea tranviaria a Nottingham hanno trovato più semplice usare OpenStreetMap. Dettagliata, aggiornata e con licenza libera.
  • Nederlands (edit): Aannemers in het Verenigd Koninkrijk hebben toegang tot de zeer gedetailleerde kaarten van de topografische dienst, maar om een kaart op deze mededeling te plaatsen vonden de bouwers van de nieuwe tram in Nottingham het makkelijker om OpenStreetMap te gebruiken. Gedetailleerd, bijgewerkt en met een vrije licentie.
