​Next steps & Progress

Following a 12-week public consultation in the summer of 2014, TfGM have now submitted an application to the Department for Transport for the Transport and Works Act Order required to construct the scheme. This application was made on the 11th November 2014.

Now the application has been made, TfGM are within the timescales of the statutory process for TWAO applications as set out by the DfT.

A public inquiry into the Trafford Park Transport and Works Act Order application was held in July 2015 and has now closed.

Following a period of tendering, construction of the Trafford Park Line is likely to commence in 2016 and the new Metrolink Trafford Park Line is planned to be in service in 2019/20.

We will keep you up to date with information on this project via this website.
