Central reservation of Mauldeth Road West near Chorlton Park Primary School, Chorlton
Looking away from Barlow Moor Road, with the school on the left. This dual carriageway road was built in the 1920s with a wide central strip reserved for electric trams. The tram tracks were never laid and instead two rows of trees were planted, mainly London planes. These were felled during summer 2011 to make way for an extension to the Metrolink network to Wythenshawe and Manchester Airport, which will run down the centre of this part of Mauldeth Road West, having crossed the Mersey near Jackson's Boat. The area seen here is just to the north east of the site of the Barlow Moor Road tram stop.
