Temporary service change

Due to a cracked rail on the approach to Victoria station, there is a temporary service change to the tram network.

  • No trams will operate between Victoria and Exchange Square until the track crossing is replaced. The track manufacturer and TfGM are working to establish a date for this.

  • From the start of service on Monday 12 February, the East Didsbury-Shaw and Crompton service will operate between East Didsbury and Exchange Square only. There will be no peak service between Shaw and Crompton and Exchange Square.

Due to a technical issue, customers on the East Didsbury Line may notice the times on the passenger information display boards and the app may be inaccurate. We are aware of the issue and working to fix this. However, in the meantime, services are still operating.


Victoria engineering works

On Sunday 25 February, work will take place at Victoria.

The essential work will impact the Bury and, Oldham and Rochdale lines, with trams terminating at Queens Road and Monsall respectively. In addition, the Airport line will only operate to Cornbrook.
