  1. TfGM are reporting an operational incident is currently affecting tram services across much of its network leaving most services suspended due to an electrical issue. Additionally some roads in Manchester have been closed due to the incident which seems to be focused between the Victoria and Shudehill tram stops. The underground fire is said to have started on balloon street. There are reports that two people have sustained minor injuries. Anyone planning to travel on the service this morning is being advised to seek alternative arrangements. The line in and out of MediaCityUK and Eccles is currently affected and suspended. Greater Manchester Police have issued a statement on Electrical Issue on Balloon Street At around 9.20am today (Wednesday 9 June 2021), police were called to reports of an incident on the Metrolink system in Manchester city centre. Following an under-ground electrical issue on Balloon Street, which would have been accompanied by a loud bang, two people have received minor injuries whilst carrying out work inside a manhole. Police, alongside colleagues from GMFRS and NWAS are in attendance and there are not believed to be any suspicious circumstances. Corporation Street and Balloon Street are currently closed. Superintendent Helen Critchley from the City of Manchester Division said: Current services which are still operating: Rochdale to Monsall only Manchester Airport to Piccadilly with minor delays Altrincham to Piccadilly with minor delays Customers can use tickets on all local buses and Northern Rail services between Manchester City Centre - Altrincham - Didsbury - Airport - Rochdale - Ashton. It is being reported that disruption is likely to continue until lunchtime.
  2. A new branch of the Metrolink between MediaCityUK and Manchester City Centre, via Salford Crescent, could become a reality within the next 20 years under plans which make up part of the the City Centre Transport Strategy for 2014, which has now been backed by Salford City Council. A recent report has concluded that the Metrolink has brought major benefits to some local communities in the form of clean air and reduction of congestion on roads. Salford Council aims to place the crescent at the heart of the major transport gateway into and out of the city centre, along with pedestrianizing parts of the A6 to create a boulevard. The joint strategy between Salford and Manchester is hoped to see up to 90% of peak time commutes to be made on foot, cycle, bus and trains as infrastructure improvements are made to help reduce the carbon footprint of the sister city centres and create better transport links. However some have suggested that this is just another example of Manchester's continuing encroachment into Salford and a blurring of the line as to where each city starts and ends. Others have suggested that it would be unwise to be putting the cities 'eggs' into the public transport basket and ask if it is truly a viable way forward as the local reduction in footfall on public transport over the past year due to Covid has demonstrated huge flaws in the thinking. The Metrolink itself has struggled with dwindling numbers due to lockdown and as we face an uncertain future with mutations of the coronavirus a continued threat, it is only wise to consider the possibility of a repeat of 2020 at some point ahead. Additionally it has been noted that as more people opt to work from home and with some companies seemingly championing the benefits it brings, some members of the public are questioning if the strategy has been thought out properly. A recent consultation resulted in 2,425 responses from the public but it was noted that just 5% of those who responded actually lived within Salford. Regardless, Salford Crescent is set to play a huge role in the development around the University campus and is being seen as a focal point for growthin the city, and so it is hoped the addition of a Metrolink route will bring benefits to the area which already boasts rail and bus connectivity. The new route is being suggested as an important part of the joint strategy in the coming years and Labours Tracy Kelly, Salford's statutory deputy city mayor, has welcomed the new transport strategy. Speaking at the meeting on Monday, she told the audience: Photos: English Cities Fund and SM
  3. They have been a pain for drivers but residents and local businesses are set to benefit from a better road surface when essential repairs to Eccles New Road and South Langworthy Road begin on Saturday 20 March. The work – which will see large sections of the road repaired – is being done by Salford City Council’s highways teams and requires a 17-day partial closure of the Metrolink Eccles line. Councillor Mike McCusker, executive support member for planning, housing and sustainable development, said: Resurfacing works are being done now while the road and Metrolink network remains quiet and ahead of the reopening of some non-essential retail and leisure services from 12 April, as set out in the government’s ‘road map’ out of lockdown. From Saturday 20 March until Monday 5 April (inclusive), trams will only run between Ashton-under-Lyne and MediaCityUK. A bus replacement service will be in operation between Eccles and MediaCityUK. Anyone travelling during this time should plan in advance and allow extra time for their journey. Passengers should also follow the latest safety guidelines, such as wearing a face covering, unless exempt, when travelling and can visit www.tfgm.com for the latest information and advice.
  4. Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) are asking for the publics feedback on proposals for planned improvements to existing cycle lanes on Eccles Old Road. They say that the route will provide improvements of the links to Salford Royal Hospital and Salford University as well as employment opportunities in the town of Eccles and at MediaCityUK / Salford Quays. Whilst at the same time making cycling safer and easier around the area. They hope this will be achieved through the provision of light segregation to existing advisory cycle lanes. They would like public feed back on the following: Install light segregation features (reflective bollards and delineators) onto the existing advisory cycle lanes on Eccles Old Road. There will be no impact on traffic capacity. The proposed light segregation will look similar to what has recently installed on Liverpool Street and Oldfield Road, see image below. The cycle lanes on Eccles Old Road to be mandatory except where there is existing on-street parking provision. You can have your say and leave feedback on the following link: Have Your Say Today – Eccles Old Road – Commonplace
  5. During the long summer break, there is a temptation for young people to get involved in activities that may seem like harmless fun but can be seen differently by other people or carry serious consequences if things get out of hand. Safe4Summer aims to provide young people with enough activities to banish boredom and offers advice about personal safety as well as promoting messages about social responsibility. In addition to offering advice to young people, police are urging the community to help make their local area a safer and more enjoyable place to live. Parents and guardians are advised to maintain a line of communication when their children are out and about and talk to them about personal safety and the dangers of issues such as underage drinking. The wider community is asked to be proactive in reporting any instances of antisocial behaviour to police on 101 or via the new live chat function on the GMP website. PC Natalie Dolan, of Greater Manchester Police, said: Paul Etches, Head of Prevention and Protection at Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service said: Chris Thorpe, the TfGM lead on TravelSafe, said: For more information and to find out what activities for families and young people are happening in your local area visit www.safe4summer.com .
  6. 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.
