The proposed Wharfside stop will be located at the edge of Trafford Park on the bank of the Manchester Ship Canal. The proposed stop will be a short walk from Old Trafford, Manchester United’s football ground, providing additional public transport on match days and when other major events take place at the stadium. The stop will provide excellent access to popular local walking routes, to Salford Quays, and to the Irwell River Park.
