Rochdale gets new Metrolink Service

Trams will start operating from Rochdale town centre within the next 10 days.
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) have confirmed it will extend the Metrolink
service from Rochdale railway station to the town centre on March 31.

The first tram is due to leave the Smith Street stop at 5.53am and every
12 minutes thereafter.

Councillor Andrew Fender Chair of the TfGM Committee, said:
“Rochdale town centre is a fantastic new destination for Metrolink passengers
and the latest piece in the expansion of the network. This new line takes people
right into the heart of the town centre at a time when really exciting changes
are being made. Metrolink is going hand in hand with the transformation of the
area and it’s a great thing to be part of.”

Rochdale Council leader, Coun Colin Lambert, added:
“The opening of the Metrolink in Rochdale is another huge step forward in the
regeneration of Rochdale town centre. Along with the proposed £100m retail and
family leisure facility and our unrivalled heritage offer it will help turn Rochdale
into a popular destination for visitors and better connect us to the rest of the region.”

TfGM say test trams will start using the line next Thursday (March 27) and passenger
services will start the following week.
