TRAM passengers are facing major disruption this morning, as Metrolink tram services on the Altrincham and Eccles lines have been suspended after cable theft and vandalism in the Cornbrook area.
The damage has also led to the public address systems at the affected stops to be out of action, meaning no announcements can be made to passengers there.
A Metrolink shuttle bus service is operation as follows: Trafford Bar - Altrincham.
Atrincham - Trafford Bar.
Trafford Bar - Eccles.
Eccles - Trafford Bar.
Passengers can use their tickets and passes on the following bus services: Altrincham line = Arriva 263.
Eccles line = First 33.
The Bury line and the South Manchester line from Victoria to St Werburghs Road are operating 12-minute services.
