In Pictures: New Metrolink Park and Ride site on Trafford Park line

In this age of integrated transport and the move towards encouraging people to use public transport as much as possible (except when there’s a massive global pandemic of course!), a number of tramways have Park and Ride sites built close to tramstops to aid this modal shift. When the Trafford Park line opened back in March one thing which was conspicuous by its absence was a Park and Ride facility but all that will change in the future with work now underway close to the stop at Parkway.

The facility is located just a short walk away from the tramstop to the southwest of the roundabout at Parkway Circle. Work had only just started before the line opened to the public – it obviously wasn’t the intention for it to open it at the same time – and there seems to have been a time where work stalled at the start of the pandemic although it is now in full swing once more. TfGM have not yet announced when the car park may open.

Three images showing progress on the Parkway Park and Ride site. As can be seen a fair amount of work is still required. (All Photographs by Steve Hyde, 17th July 2020)
