New Roof Construction, Manchester Victoria Station
Metrolink tram 3059 passes under the new roof section as it travels through Victoria on the way to Bury.

The new station roof will consist of fifteen 1.2 metre-deep steel torus-shaped roof sections, the longest spanning 120 metres, supported on concrete buttresses and single cantilever columns on the station concourse.

The new roof is currently unclad but, when completed, it will be covered with ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) panels (LinkExternal link Morgan Sindall).
