Looks like a new timetable from 3rd Jan... search for MM1 on Traveline timetables. More AM peak journeys from Wolverhampton from what I can tell, plus other minor changes

Except on the internal tram route diagrams and on the announcements.

I assume either someone's forgotten to change the announcement program or they didn't record one for St Chads when they did the rest of them, which would be nothing short of bizarre.

My tram this morning (37 I think) had updated maps and announcements

In fact the one place you can't get to from St Chads is St Chads! Unless they open a lift and stairs down to Great Charles Street you have to walk alongside Snow Hill station to the end of the grass track and then come back down the road.

I tried the replacement services yesterday. Good announcements at stops and on trams that you should transfer to buses at The Crescent. Good signage at The Crescent too. Trouble is it took approx the same time from The Crescent to Wolves bus station as from Grand Central to The Crescent - around 30 minutes via the diversion. Still, generally very much better handled than last time. And they're really ripping up Bilston Street - more than half the rails on the southbound line removed.

Visited Bilston Road again. Lots of new track laid on southbound line, in various states from just 'sleepers' laid to fully concreted in and awaiting road surface. At this rate it should easily be done by Christmas.

Has the steps/lift at St. Chads (Snow Hill) officially opened? I went past it on the 16 yesterday, and it looks as though the construction fences have been removed. ???

Would make my journey to/from school much more efficient.
