Metrolink events to brief public on airport link

Transport for Greater Manchester is holding half-a-dozen public events to outline plans for the forthcoming Metrolink line to Manchester Airport.

Preparatory construction work has started on the new line which is due to begin services at the end of 2015. Leaving the South Manchester line just after the St Werburgh's Road stop in Chorlton, the Manchester Airport line will run on nine miles of new track through Northern Moor, Baguley and Wythenshawe to Manchester Airport.

Philip Purdy, Transport for Greater Manchester's Metrolink director, said: "The Manchester Airport extension will improve people's access to one of the country's busiest airports, and we are committed to keeping people informed throughout all stages of the line's construction.

"Our information events continue to be a useful way for people to meet with the Metrolink team, view plans and find out more about what is happening with the new line. So, I'd encourage people to come along and take advantage of these events and ask any questions they may have."

The events will be held on:

Tuesday 24 May: From 4pm to 7pm at Wythenshawe Forum, Forum Square M22 5RF
