Metrolink to Exchange Square

Metrolink 3104 at the new Exchange Square stop adjacent to the Corn Exchange and the Arndale Centre
Sunday 6th December saw the opening of the first section of the new Second City Crossing line on Manchester's Metrolink system, that will eventually run all the way between Victoria Station and St. Peter's Square by 2017. The initial section of the line between Victoria Station and the new Exchange Square stop on Corporation Street commenced operation early on the morning of the 6th. The Sunday service runs between Exchange Square and Rochdale, for the rest of the week (Monday to Saturday) the route will operate a shorter service terminating at Shaw and Crompton.
