​Next steps

Feedback from the consultation will be considered as proposals for the Metrolink Trafford Park Line are developed.

TfGM will report the results of the consultation to the Transport for Greater Manchester Committee and Greater Manchester Combined Authority and will seek formal approval to make an application for a Transport and Works Act Order. The application will include a Transport Assessment and an Environment Statement for the scheme. The Order will provide the powers needed to build and operate the Trafford Park Line.

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.
