Trafford Park Metrolink Extension - NOTIFICATION OF A PERMANENT TRAFFIC REGULATION ORDER (TRO) FOR TRAFFORD WHARF ROAD
A message from TfGM:
For the Trafford Park Line Metrolink extension, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) obtained powers within The Transport for Greater Manchester (Light Rapid Transit System) (Trafford Park Extension) Order 2016 to introduce a variety of traffic restrictions to assist the operation of the tram and to ensure safety and accessibility for users of the highway.
In this regard please click here to view a Notice of Intent for the BOROUGH OF TRAFFORD (PROHIBITION OF WAITING AND LOADING AND PROVISION OF PARKING) ORDER 2001 (AMENDMENT NO 204) ORDER 2018 – Ref TPL-TWAO-13. The effect of this Order will be to introduce, No Waiting and No Loading At Any Time restrictions on Trafford Wharf Road which will come into force on the 21st October 2019.
Please note that whilst the Notice includes lengths of no waiting restrictions on Elevator Road this is purely an administrative process to adjust the length of restriction, which gets shortened due to kerbline changes, in order that the termination points remain as existing. The effects of this Order can be seen on the attached plans.
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 powers under which these restrictions are being introduced or the Metrolink extensions in general, please do not hesitate to contact either me or a member of the Future Metrolink team on 0161 244 1555 (office hours) or email MetrolinkTPL@tfgm.com.
