GMPTE outlines Oldham Metrolink plans
Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive is to hold two consultation events to present Metrolink proposals for the Oldham Mumps area, including a new road layout.
Under the proposals, the temporary Metrolink line from Featherstall Road to Oldham Mumps will run at ground level through a new junction at Mumps roundabout, until the town centre Metrolink extension opens in spring 2014.
The plans include the construction of a tram stop, creating an interchange with bus services, and a park-and-ride site at Mumps, which will be part of the new town centre line.
The events will be held from 4pm to 7pm at The Link Centre, 140 Union Street, Oldham, OL1 1DZ on Thursday 24 February and Tuesday 1 March.
The new Metrolink line to Oldham and Rochdale is due to open as far as Central Park and Oldham Mumps later this year and Rochdale Railway Station in spring next year.
