Work Starts On Extending Manchester Metrolink To The Trafford Centre

This article on the BBC gives some more details.

The Manchester Metrolink seems to be expanding fast and the Trafford Park Line would appear to be planned to be open by 2020. The BBC says this.

The line is expected to open in 2020, increasing the size of the Metrolink network to more than 106.5km (66 miles).

The Trafford Park line will call at six new tram stops – Wharfside, Imperial War Museum, Village, Parkway, EventCity and the Trafford Centre.

There is no word about continuing the expansion to Port Salford. But then there’s no news about sorting out the bridge over the Irwell, that the contractors dropped.

  2. Possibly, don’t know much about the Ordeal chord. Mostly I drive into Manchester, and to the Trafford Centre on the rare occasions I go these days. At the moment my Post Sepsis Syndrome is giving me issues, making me very very tired and achey, so not going to as many places as I had been. It is only recently I have actually realised how nearly I died, and how serious it was. A lot to process.
