Major changes to the Metrolink tram service have come into effect. Trams wont stop at St Peter's square or travel to Eccles until the end of August when improvements to the line are complete.

A range of replacement bus services will run through Manchester city centre and along the Eccles via MediaCityUK route during the work

For details on the changes and replacement services check here.

It’s a big summer of change on Metrolink as we get ready to open the new St Peter’s Square tram stop and carry out essential track maintenance on the Eccles line.

“We’ve planned Metrolink and replacement bus services very carefully to make sure we’re providing good transport links right across the tram network. We’ll also be signposting and promoting a walking route through Manchester city centre.

“All the details are now available both online and across the tram network leaving plenty of time to plan your journey before the changes start.”
