We gave a quick look at the end of last year at recent progress on the construction work to extend West Midlands Metro at the Birmingham end of the current line and now in this pictorial update we take a look at recent progress at the Wolverhampton line. With track now in place between the points on the current line just before St George’s to a point just short of Wolverhampton Railway Station tarmac has also been put in place. With no overhead due to be installed for this line – trams will run under battery power – other major work for this extension will be tram platforms and the section just outside the railway station; this latter work won’t follow until later once other works at the station are completed. As a result of this required work trams aren’t due to start running until 2020. Andy Walters provides us with the latest images.
