A Manchester-bound Metrolink tram arrives at the new island platform at Metrolink’s Deansgate-Castlefield stop which is currently being remodelled. For the time being this platform is being used for both inbound and outbound trams as the outbound platform is currently closed whilst it is being upgraded.

Originally, the Metrolink stop had two platforms serving tracks running in separate directions. These platforms were ‘staggered’ with reduced length and confused access arrangements. It therefore had no capacity to operate as an ‘interchange’.

Current improvements include the creation of this new (inbound) island platform and two new track cross-overs are being installed, allowing trams to turn back in both directions.
