Metrolink Construction at Crumpsall, January 2019
Major upgrade work to upgrade the station began in August 2017 in readiness for the stop to act as the northern terminus for the new six-stop line which is planned to run directly from the Trafford Centre through the city centre and onto the upgraded Crumpsall stop. As well as changes to the existing platforms, the major work involves creating a new entrance from Crumpsall Lane, with both stepped and step-free access. The existing inbound platform is being enlarged to form a new island platform with a turnback facility on the eastern side of the current inbound platform. North bound trams will be able to return southwards to Manchester city centre from this stop; similar to Shaw and Compton on the Manchester, Oldham and Rochdale line. The new line is scheduled to be operational by 2020.
Crumpsall Metrolink Station/Stop
Crumpsall Metrolink Station is on the original (Manchester to Bury) Line which was taken over by Metrolink in 1992; it is located at the corner of Crumpsall Lane and Station Road, in an approximately north-south cutting 3 to 4 metres below the surrounding area. All of the original (British Rail) station buildings had been removed by the start of the new millennium. It is planned that the stop will form the northern terminus of the extension to the Trafford Centre which is scheduled to become operational by 2020.
