Public consultation on plans to build a new Metrolink line through Trafford Park will launch today.

Transport for Greater Manchester is developing the 5.5km line, which will run from the existing Pomona stop on a largely off-street route through to the Trafford Centre.

People will be able to have their say on the tram line proposals over the next 12 weeks, with fourteen staffed drop-in events arranged at public venues along the proposed route.

More information is available on the website of Transport for Greater Manchester.

Peter Cushing, Metrolink Director at TfGM, said: “This new tram line proposal is great news for the Trafford area.

“Metrolink will offer excellent transport connections to local businesses, shopping and leisure opportunities along the route – while also opening up links to the wider tram network, which will cover around 92km when the new Airport line opens later this year."
