TfGM to hold airport tram link events

PEOPLE can find out more about the new Metrolink Manchester Airport line at a series of events being held in the next few weeks.

Transport for Greater Manchester is holding six events about the new line. The events will be held on:

Tuesday 24 May: From 4pm to 7pm at Wythenshawe Forum.

Thursday 26 May: From 4pm to 7pm at Benchill Community Centre, Wythenshawe.

Tuesday 30 May: From 4pm to 7pm at Royal Oak Community Centre, Wythenshawe.

Wednesday 1 June: From 4pm to 7pm at the Manchester Health Academy Community Building, Wythenshawe.

Wednesday 8 June: From 4pm to 7pm at Chorlton High School, Chorlton.

Thursday 9 June: From 4pm to 7pm at St Elizabeth’s Church Hall, Peel Hall.

Philip Purdy, Transport for Greater Manchester’s Metrolink director, said: “The Manchester Airport extension will improve people’s access to one of the country’s busiest airports, and we are committed to keeping people informed throughout all stages of the line’s construction.

“Our information events continue to be a useful way for people to meet with the Metrolink team, view plans and find out more about what is happening with the new line. So, I’d encourage people to come along and take advantage of these events and ask any questions they may have.”

The extension to the airport will leave the South Manchester line just after the St Werburgh’s Road stop in Chorlton, on nine miles of new track through Northern Moor, Baguley and Wythenshawe to Manchester Airport.

For further information on the events, call 0161 244 1555 or email future.metrolink@tfgm.com.

North Manchester you say? Let me think... so, I can't think of a Metrolink line in North Manchester.

Oh, except for that one that goes to Bury. You know, the first line that ever opened on the Metrolink?

Aside from your literally unbelievable ignorance, the reason you won't have seen any instructions on how to get to the airport by tram is that THE TRAM DOESN'T GO THERE YET.
