THERE was early morning disruption on the Altrincham to Piccadilly tram line caused by a points failure.

The delays were caused by problems at Trafford Bar station on Thursday, August 7.

A spokesman for Metrolink said: “We apologise to passengers who experienced a delay this morning due to a points failure at Trafford Bar that affected services for around an hour. Services returned to normal around 8am with some minor delays, in plenty of time for visitors to catch the tram to the test match at Old Trafford.”
