Construction of New Metrolink Stop at St Peter's Square

The Metrolink stop at St Peterís Square is to be completely rebuilt. The existing stop will be demolished in summer 2015 and a new one will be built closer to the new Cenotaph and Manchester Art Gallery at the end of the Square. This will also make room for improvements to public and pedestrian areas to complement Manchester City Councilís flagship redevelopment of the square. The new Metrolink stop will have two new island style platforms and two sets of track in each direction, allowing more services to run through it on the existing lines and the new Second City Crossing. It is expected that the new stop will open late in 2016.
