Metrolink Trafford Park Line – Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders

Lee Howarth

Dear recipient

Metrolink Trafford Park Line – Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders

We have written to you previously about Trafford Park Line Metrolink works taking place in your area. This email is in regards to the next stage of works at various sites in the area (listed below). The work is mainly to improve the highways, to facilitate track construction and to carry out safety improvements and repairs.

A number of Temporary Traffic Regulation Orders (TTROs) will be introduced at the end of this month and in September 2018.

The details are included here:

 1.       Warren Bruce Road

a.       A prohibition of the left turn from Warren Bruce Road into Wharfside Way. It is anticipated that this will come into operation from 21 August 2018 and will remain in force for approximately eight weeks. This Order is required to enable highway improvement works across the left turn approach lane in connection with the Trafford Park line works.

b.      A one-way traffic system will be introduced on Warren Bruce Road which will, when combined with the existing temporary Order, make the whole length one-way from Village Circle to Trafford Wharf Road, in that direction. This will come into effect on 28 August 2018 and will be required for a period of approximately 12 weeks. The reason for the Order is to facilitate the highway and track construction works at the junction of Warren Bruce Road and Village Circle.

2.       Pomona Strand – weekend closure

Pomona Strand is expected to be closed from 06:00 on Saturday 1 September until 17:00 on Sunday 2 September to enable a crane to be situated on the road to lift in large bridge deck components.

 3.       Mercury Way - overnight closure
Mercury Way will be closed from 20:00 to 06:00, between a point 190 metres north of its junction with Barton Dock Road to its junction with Barton Dock Road. This Order will come into force on 3 September and will be required for approximately four nights. Access to properties on Mercury Way will be maintained via Barton Dock Road, Peel Circle, Phoenix Way, private access roads within the EventCity site (as agreed with EventCity). The reason for the Order is to facilitate the completion of highway surfacing works on Mercury Way.

 4.       Parkway between Barton Dock Road and Parkway Circle – weekend closure

 a.       A weekend closure of Parkway between Barton Dock Road and Parkway Circle. This is to enable two cranes to lift the new bridge deck beams onto the bridge supports to form a new Metrolink bridge over Bridgewater Canal. We will also take advantage of this closure to undertake highway resurfacing works.

The Order will be in effect from 00:01 on Saturday 8 September until 06:00 on Monday 10 September.

However, if the bridge lift needs to be postponed, for example due to high winds affecting the safe use of the cranes, the Order will take effect for the same times on Saturday 15 – Monday 17 September.

b.      The canal towpath which runs along the south west bank of the Bridgewater Canal will also be temporarily closed during the same time period as above. This is for safety reasons as it will not be possible to allow pedestrians and cyclists to pass safely beneath the bridge whilst the crane lifts are undertaken.

Access for pedestrians will be maintained during the temporary closures of these roads. The suggested diversion routes for vehicular traffic are included in the attached/enclosed temporary traffic regulation order notices and will be signed on the street.

We appreciate your patience during the construction of the Trafford Park Line.

TfGM will continue to engage with stakeholders along the route and will provide further information as we progress. In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding the scheme or if you would like to arrange a meeting, please contact either me or a member of the Metrolink team on 0161 244 1555 or email MetrolinkTPL@tfgm.com
