Metrolink Airport Line Opens 12 months Early

Sale Moor Councillors Phil Gratrix & Mike Freeman along with other Manchester Councillors and invited guests enjoyed a preview trip on the new Metrolink Airport Line on Thursday 30th October. The line goes live on Monday 3rd November and the trip gave Phil & Mike a chance to view the line particularly the stretch through Sale Moor at the back of the Nurseries Estate, where the lives of local residents there have been disrupted for the past three years.

It is pleasing to note that all of the requests made by the residents group of TfGM and Metrolink in respect of landscaping fencing and security have been met. There have been some long and hard negotiations but this is proof of residents having a strong voice when they come together and the role Local Councillors play in  channelling that voice. 

I am confident Sale Moor residents will benefit from this new transport link which has been delivered 12 months early by a Labour controlled TfGM
