Territorial opportunities of tram-based systems: Comparative analysis between Nottingham (UK) and Valenciennes (FRA)

Abstract : Within the European project " Sintropher ", this paper focuses on a comparative analysis between two tramway systems in Nottingham (UK) and Valenciennes (FRA). The aim is to understand how these tram-based systems were successfully integrated in the urban areas. Firstly, we describe the national contexts concerning assessments of urban public transport policies. Secondly, we analyse these tram projects, and especially their territorial dynamics. Thirdly, we have a look at urban transformations that occurred around their terminal stations in Hucknall and Denain.
