I recently received an email about track maintenance to the tram network. It included the following sentence:
Track at the corner of Fletcher Gate and Victoria Street – believed to be one of the sharpest bends on a UK tram system - will be replaced to ensure tram services can continue to be provided safely and reliably.
Here is the location of said curve: (52.9532937, -1.1453881). I’d estimate it to be around a 20m radius.
I am now, of course, interested in what the sharpest (smallest radius) bend is in a tram track.
I’d be interested in tram tracks from around the world, although it would be nice to know if the Fletcher Gate / Victoria Street bend is the sharpest in the U.K.
