CHANGES are being made to Manchester’s Metrolink as part of its multi-million pound transformation.

From today, February 24, for approximately nine months, trams will have to pass through Victoria in both directions on a single line of track.

As a result, for the duration of the work, every Bury to Altrincham service will be served by double trams from start to end of service, boosting capacity at the busiest times.

The service running from Bury to Altrincham, via St. Peter’s Square, will be every 12 minutes.

Peter Cushing, Transport for Greater Manchester’s Metrolink director, said: “We’ve considered these changes very carefully and they will provide customers with the most effective, safest and least disruptive option. They also mirror demand we’ve monitored on the network.”
