Essential repair work to close city centre tram stop

Essential Metrolink maintenance work will take place in August resulting in some temporary disruption to city centre services.

Market Street and Shudehill stops will close and trams will not run between Victoria and Piccadilly Gardens for approximately nine days, from Saturday 8 to Sunday 16 August inclusive. Services between St Peter’s Square and Piccadilly Gardens (towards Piccadilly) will be unaffected.

The work will take place on the corner of High Street and Market Street outside of Debenhams and access to businesses will be maintained at all times.

Transport for Greater Manchester’s Head of Metrolink Danny Vaughan said: “To minimise any impact on our customers, we will undertake these works before schools return fully in September and more and more people return to work.

“Contactors will also be working24 hours a day to ensure they’re completed as quickly as possible, minimising any disruption to local city centre businesses.

“All city centre stops are within walking distance of each other and walking routes will be signposted throughout works, but we would advise passengers to plan their journey in advance and allow extra time where possible.”
