We’ve started laying the tram tracks at intu Trafford Centre – the final destination of the major new Trafford Park Line extension.

A special event was held by the entrance of the Selfridges store on Baton Dock Road to celebrate the milestone.

The £350m Trafford Park Line extension, which is due to open in 2020, will add a further 5.5km and six stops to Metrolink, already the UK’s largest light rail network.

The new line is being funded by Greater Manchester’s Devolution Deal, which was signed by the city-region’s leaders in 2014. Trafford Council are providing £20m towards the project.
