All Manchester Metrolink services returned to their normal routes from the start of service on Tuesday 30th May – a week after they were prevented from travelling through Victoria after the horrific and senseless terrorist attack on Manchester Arena on Monday 22nd May.
In addition to the closure of Victoria throughout the week long closure no trams were able to serve Shudehill, Market Street or Exchange Square stops with the Second City Crossing not being served by any trams as East Didsbury trams were diverted to Piccadilly.
During the week of the closure the following services ran:
Altrincham to Etihad Campus
Ashton-under-Lyne to Eccles via MediaCityUK
Bury to Queen’s Road
East Didsbury to Piccadilly
Manchester Airport to Deansgate-Castlefield
Rochdale Town Centre to Monsall
22 people lost their lives in the terrorist attack and our thoughts are with everyone who is affected in any way by this atrocity.
