Seaton Tramway gets new terminus

WORK on building a new £2 million town centre terminus for the Seaton Tramway began on September 18.

The new station will provide a modern, all-year round facility for visitors, offering a small cafe and gift shop. With a modern, inspiring and engaging experience, visitors will be able to immerse themselves in the fascination surrounding the history and operations of the tramway.

The terminus will replace the Edwardian-style ticket office built in 1996, and will see a new contemporary design focusing on the heritage of the tramway.

While construction takes place, daily tram services will continue to run to timetable, from Riverside Depot.

An alternative shuttle service will be provided between the old Seaton terminus and Riverside Depot between September 18 and October 29 and from late-December to the grand opening of the new station on March 30 next year.

The shuttles also include the Halloween tram events operating on selected days between October 23-31.
