That hasn't been mentioned by anyone involved in the project so we don't know for sure, but with it being deeper underground than it currently is I would assume that it would have to enter a tunnel portal somewhere - maybe on Aytoun St? After Piccadilly station I imagine it would resurface after Sheffield St.

Metrolink: Trafford Park branch | Pomona to the Trafford Centre
Tram line | City Zone

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=866944

  • Address: Pomona, Trafford Park Road, Village Way, Parkway & the Trafford Centre, Trafford

  • Contractor: MPact-Thales

  • Route: Crumpsall to Trafford Centre (section from Crumpsall to Pomona is existing)

  • Route letter: J

  • Number of new stations: 6

  • Distance of new track: 5.5km

  • Interchanges with National Rail: 2, at Victoria and Deansgate-Castlefield

  • Interchanges with existing Network: 4, at Pomona, Cornbrook, Victoria and St Peter's Square

  • Operator: Metrolink, Transport for Greater Manchester

Current status: Approved by TTWA, awaiting LA approval

Nearest transport: N/A


Map of the new route and stations:






The Metrolink Trafford Park branch has now been approved by central government, meaning it will start by Christmas, and will be operational by 2020/21.

The city has been waiting about a year for the paper pushers in Westminster to give approval for this, god only knows why it's taken so long. Hopefully a later part of Greater Manchester's devolution deal will mean we don't have to wait around for Westminster to waste our time meaning we can just get on with stuff like this!

Winter start for £350m Metrolink Trafford Park extension

AHR developed the masterplan in close liaison with the Manchester City Council Planning Department, and together with Deloitte Planning Consultants drew up a draft Strategic Regeneration Framework document. This was then approved by the Executive Committee as relevant Planning Guidance for the site and forthcoming applications.

Following this, AHR developed the design of the Phase 1 proposals. This first phase of development provides 531 residential apartments specifically designed to be attractive to the ‘PRS’ residential market alongside 200,000sqft of flexible office space. Through rigorous consultation and pre-application discussion with the local authority, the apartments and office space have been designed to a level which conforms to the local authorities’ technical requirements of both space standards and aspirations for the area in terms of use viability.

This development, alongside the wider New Bailey area and other proposals nearby, will fundamentally change the area from temporary, low rent parking lots to a permanent, vibrant piece of the city centre.

The New Bailey Masterplan has been developed over time to enable trusted products to be specified for their quality and durability for the rental sector. Another key aim of this masterplan was to meet the demanding requirements of the PRS market. We utilised standard typologies for apartments specifically for the PRS model and determined closed layouts (traditional with hall) or open plan layouts early on in the process. These key decisions enabled an efficient design which can be carried through to construction. Consistency of bedroom sizes (and provision of bathrooms) for people sharing an apartment were also a key requirement of the PRS model

The eight block proposal seeks to re-stitch the site back into the urban grain, creating connections to surrounding, existing and future developments such as Middlewood Locks, New Bailey Zone B and also Manchester’s St John’s Masterplan on the opposite side of the Irwell.

The masterplan forges new urban linkages. The Irwell River Park and towpath are connected to the site via a new riverside 'Pocket Park' and landscaped courtyards. Stanley Street forms the development spine, linking across Irwell Street to the New Bailey Zone B commercial development and Salford Central train station beyond, as well as into Manchester City Centre to the south. To the north, Stanley Street leads onto a new pedestrian crossing bridging the busy Trinity Way and connecting to the emerging Middlewood Locks development.
