Metrolink: Second City Crossing | St Peter's Square to Victoria
Tram line | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...6944&page=2041

  • Address: John Dalton St, Cross St and Exchange Square, City Zone Manchester M2

  • Contractor: MPact-Thales

  • Number of expanded stations: 3

  • Number of new stations: 1

  • Interchanges with National Rail: 1, at Victoria

  • Interchanges with existing Network: 2, at Victoria and St Peter's Square

  • Operator: Metrolink, Transport for Greater Manchester

Current status: Under Construction

Nearest transport: N/A








Update by Slow Burn.

Now that St Peter's Square station has reopened and tram services on the 1CC (First City Crossing) down Moseley St has resumed, all work has now been concentrated on finishing the tracks down John Dalton St to join the now completed section of the 2CC at Albert Square. It's hoped these works can be completed by Christmas.






Tracks have been laid at the St Peter's Square end - it's the Albert Square end which still needs doing:








St Peter's Square station will see 45 trams per hour once the full network is restored - that's one tram every 90 seconds in one direction, and one tram every 45 seconds in both directions.

Update by Slow Burn.

Cladding on the front now reaching its final floor, with only one-and-a-half floors to go for the tracery cladding on the side.

The ground floor is my favourite part of this scheme - the pillars and the tram station work really well.

I think this picture probably sums up the construction that's going on in Manchester city centre ATM. One part of the city centre.

2 st Peter's Square looks like it was designed in 1972. Manchester can do better than that.

Apologies if this link has been posted before?

I know some of the renders have, but not sure about the rest of the information.

Click on the link to see all the info. You can also increase the size of the renders without losing clarity. 11 pages.

Had to reduce them in size to screen grab them. Haven't reduced them in size.

The red outlined towers are Owen Street,. Currently onsite.
