Ashton Road looking east, Droylsden
Ashton Road looking east, Droylsden
The tram lines along here form part of the Metrolink extension from the Droylsden stop to Ashton-under-Lyne. This section is not expected to open until probably 2014, although the overhead power lines have already been installed here. The traction posts have been painted an attractive shade of dark red. The tracks continue east along Ashton Road and then Droylsden Road for about half a mile to the Audenshaw tram stop. The rest of the route is planned to use alignments not shared with other traffic, and construction is well under way.
