Oldfield Park trams would run along the northern
side of the viaduct, re-crossing the one-way system and passing
behind the remaining Georgian building of the Lower Bristol Road.
Cutting diagonally through land at present occupied by a car washing
facility, the trams would run along the centre of the Lower Bristol
Road in the direction of the Green Tree public house.
The diversion behind the Georgian house would allow inbound trams to by-pass some of the traffic which tails back from the one-way system.
The Combe Down tram, on reaching the railway viaduct would pass through the now disused arch which used to carry the old alignment of the Wells Road. It would continue along the grass reservation on the south side of the railway, re-cross the one-way system and proceed up a ramp on the alignment of the old Wells Road (which is now a car park) to join the present Wells Road outside the Railway Inn public house.
