TRAFFORD PARK TRAM LINE

Work has already commenced on the new £350million, 6 stop metro line that will boost public transport connections to over 1,300 businesses at Trafford Park, Europe’s largest industrial estate.

The new line will also provide connections to the nearby Trafford Centre where over 8,000 people work and where on average 31million people shop per year.

The tram will connect No.1 Old Trafford and the surrounding area to the whole of the Greater Manchester tram network and is part of Greater Manchester’s plans to support local regeneration and economic growth whilst making travel easier. The tram will be segregated from road traffic thus providing a fast, frequent and reliable service.

MAP OF THE PROPOSED TRAM ROUTE

The new line will run from the City Centre through the existing Pomona Metrolink stop on the Eccles line right through the heart of the Trafford Park business area to the Trafford Centre. It will result in Manchester having the UK’s largest tram network.
