Central Park Metrolink Station
Central Park Metrolink Station
Central Park Station, part of the recently (June 2012) opened Metrolink “phase 3A” expansion to Oldham, is certainly the most impressive tram stop on the network to date, featuring a striking curved copper and glass canopy suspended by a cable-tensioned steel structure. The station serves The Central Park Urban Regeneration Area in north-east Manchester. It forms part of The Gateway, a £36.5 million transport interchange which will include local bus services as well as the Metrolink tram stop (LinkExternal link Manchester City Council).
