Re-opens to passengers in February
Metrolink trams are going to operate again to a new Manchester Victoria stop next month after a major overhaul to build new platforms and tracks.
The stop is expected to re-open to passengers by Wednesday 18 February, during a week of changes to Metrolink services that will allow an extended programme of work at Victoria and along Balloon Street to be completed.
The redesigned and expanded Metrolink stop will ultimately allow more frequent and flexible services to run through the iconic city centre railway station as part of the new Second City Crossing and wider tram network expansion.
During the project, managed and delivered by Network Rail as a key element of its redevelopment of the station, reduced services have been running through Victoria on a single line of track without stopping.
The final stages of the Metrolink project will require a sequence of changes to tram services over the course of next month’s half-term week.
