  1. The closure is to enable work to take place that will link the new Trafford Park line, currently under construction, with the existing Metrolink network at Pomona. The line will close for 13 days after the last service on Friday 27 July. This means that there will be no tram services running between Cornbrook and Eccles from Saturday 28 July to Thursday 9 August 2018 (inclusive), while services from Ashton-under-Lyne will terminate at Deansgate-Castlefield. It will also enable us to work with Metrolink operator KeolisAmey and other partners to carry out additional enhancement works at the same time, reducing the need for future disruption. The works have been timed to coincide with school summer holidays when, traditionally, fewer people travel on the network. They have also been condensed into a single 13-day closure, preventing disruption over many weekends. We are working hard to minimise disruption to customers and stakeholders and have taken a number of steps to achieve this. We are keeping media, public and stakeholders updated before, during and after the works and extra staff will also be present in key locations and at key times to answer questions and help people get around. During the works there will be a full bus replacement operating including additional services during peak times. Please see the section below to find out where you can pick up your replacement bus service. The travel advice on this page will be continually updated throughout these works and should help you to plan your journey and make travel easier. General Travel Advice Plan ahead and expect journey times to be increased. Replacement bus services will be in operation along the Eccles line during these works. Please ensure you are familiar with replacement bus departure points before you travel. There will be signage directing passengers to replacement bus services at all affected stops. Please ensure you have a valid Metrolink ticket before you travel. Additional Metrolink staff will be available to help and assist you. Follow @OfficialTfGM and @MCRMetrolink for live and up to date travel information and advice throughout the works. Replacement Bus Service A replacement bus service will be in operation along the Eccles line during these works. The following replacement bus services will run: Piccadilly to Eccles calling at all stops, except Pomona (use Exchange Quay) and Broadway (use Harbour City or MediaCityUK) Piccadilly to MediaCityUK calling at all stops except Pomona (use Exchange Quay) Piccadilly to Deansgate-Castlefield, Cornbrook and MediaCityUK Monday to Friday 7am to 9.30am and 3.30pm to 6.30pm You can find your replacement bus stops during these works here. Please note that during the works, no replacement bus service will be able to serve Pomona (use Exchange Quay) and Broadway (use Harbour City or MediaCityUK). Further maps will be added as soon as we have the information. Please ensure you purchase your ticket either on the Metrolink stop or using the getmethere app prior to boarding a replacement bus service.
  2. Following on from our previous article about service disruption on the Metrolink System, tram services are to operate as normal on Monday This is not an issue Metrolink has experienced previously. Technicians have worked throughout the evening to identify and fix the issue which is believed to have been caused by a component attached to the Metrolink control network sending out spurious communications, which resulted in the safety system correctly shutting down. Metrolink runs a closed IT network with high levels of security and there is no indication of any form of hacking or cyber attack which would also result in shutting down the system. Passengers are advised to check the Metrolink website and Twitter feed for the latest updates but a full service is expected to be running as normal. Danny Vaughan, Head of Metrolink at TfGM, said: "I'd like to apologise once again for the disruption caused on Sunday and to let people know that we have now identified and fixed the problem. "We have had a team of technicians working hard to resolve the issue and they have done so. "Tomorrow morning there will be a full service running across all lines and looking ahead we will conduct a review to look at what lessons can be learnt to avoid this type of issue occurring again."
