Second City Crossing

Metrolink 3072 rounding the curve from Cross Street into Princess Street
Metrolink have completed their second line to cross Manchester city centre, the aptly named Second City Crossing commencing passenger operation on 26th February. The new line diverts from the existing Metrolink network at a remodelled St Peter's Square, before turning left into Princess Street alongside the town hall then making a right turn into Cross Street. The line continues past the Royal Exchange Theatre before reaching the already opened section of the extension at Exchange Square, the only stop on the Second City Crossing, the tracks continue along Corporation Street and join the existing network at Victoria Station.
