Queen's Road Tram Stop Construction
Queen's Road Tram Stop Construction
Metrolink tram 3023 passes the new tram stop under construction at Queen's Road. Since the Metrolink originally opened in 1992, trams have stopped here as a staff-only halt SD8500 : Metrolink, Queens Road Staff Halt serving the Metrolink system's Queens Road depot at Metrolink House.

In September 2013, LinkExternal link work began to convert it into a full tram stop. Queen’s Road stop will replace the staff halt; having steps and a lift from the road to both inbound and outbound platforms. At the Manchester (south) end there will be ramps to a foot track level crossing.

When the new station is complete it will replace Woodlands Road Metrolink station as the station closest to Manchester on the Bury line.
