Trams enter a subway to reach Piccadilly Station stop, (TfGM)
Manchester Metrolink has announced that infrastructure work will prevent trams running between Piccadilly Gardens and Piccadilly Railway Station from 22 June to 9 July. Track is being replaced with a bus replacement service in place. Trams on the Aston Line beyond Piccadilly station will run between Ashton and Piccadilly only. The tracks have been in use since 1992, when the first phase of the city’s light rail system was inaugurated. 
 
Pete Sommers, TfGM Metrolink Director said, “Thousands of journeys are made on Metrolink every day of the week, which is why we’re always working to keep our passengers safe and Greater Manchester moving. During these essential works, we will be doing everything we can to keep disruption to a minimum with replacement bus services and signed diversions for vehicles and pedestrians. Our control centre has good CCTV coverage at both the London Road closure points and on the diversion routes – and we also have support from our traffic signals team to ensure city centre traffic flows as freely as possible. I would encourage customers to plan ahead - check our website for the latest travel information before setting off - and leave plenty of time for their journeys.
