Metrolink Eccles line closure Saturday 28 July to Thursday 9 August 2018 ….

Paul Wilkinson has picked up from the TfGM website ….

The Eccles line will close for 13 days after the last service on Friday 27 July.

This means that there will be no tram services running between Cornbrook and Eccles from Saturday 28 July to Thursday 9 August 2018 (inclusive), while services from Ashton-under-Lyne will terminate at Deansgate-Castlefield.

It will also enable us to work with Metrolink operator KeolisAmey and other partners to carry out additional enhancement works at the same time, reducing the need for future disruption.

The works have been timed to coincide with school summer holidays when, traditionally, fewer people travel on the network. They have also been condensed into a single 13-day closure, preventing disruption over many weekends.

During the works there will be a full bus replacement operating including additional services during peak times
• Piccadilly to Eccles calling at all stops, except Pomona (use Exchange Quay) and Broadway (use Harbour City or MediaCityUK)
• Piccadilly to MediaCityUK calling at all stops except Pomona (use Exchange Quay)
• Piccadilly to Deansgate-Castlefield, Cornbrook and MediaCityUK Monday to Friday 7am to 9.30am and 3.30pm to 6.30pm.
