New Metrolink Stop. Edge Lane
The new Edge Lane tram stop is on Manchester Road, just to the east of its junction with Edge Lane. The eastbound lanes of Manchester Road have been moved to create a short central reservation/island platform with approach ramps and both tracks. A taxi rank, disabled parking bays, a kiss and ride area and cycle storage area proposed in the space between Manor Road, Cooper Street and the new eastbound carriageway of Manchester Road.

The Edge Lane tram stop has been created as part of the Metrolink East Manchester Line Extension. This line, which will eventually run to Ashton-Under-Lyne, is scheduled to open between Manchester Piccadilly and Droylsden “before Christmas 2012”.
