Cycle path level crossing west of St Werburgh's Road Metrolink stop
Cycle path level crossing west of St Werburgh's Road Metrolink stop
This photo was taken a week before the opening of the Metrolink extension to Chorlton-cum-Hardy and St Werburgh's Road. For a number of years previously the disused railway trackbed had been used as part of a popular cycle path. In utilising the former heavy rail line towards Chorlton Junction as part of the light rail network, it has been necessary to realign the cycleway to run along on side of the tram lines.

Beyond the level crossing a long ramp can be seen, which provides step free access to the tram station.
