The fifth anniversary of Metrolink’s expansion to Rochdale town centre will take place on Sunday.

The 1km extension, which links the town’s interchange and railway station, opened on 31 March 2014.

This development of the line has seen patronage on it steadily increase over the last five years, with the 6,087,000 journeys recorded in 2018 more than doubling the 3,018,000 recorded in 2013.
