PLANS for a new £350 million tram line through Trafford Park were given the green light today.
Trafford's council chiefs are celebrating after Chris Grayling, Secretary of State for Transport, granted legal powers to allow Greater Manchester transport bosses to build the new 3.4mile line.
The Trafford Park line will pass under the Trafford Road Bridge and run alongside the existing promenade next to Manchester Ship Canal before joining Trafford Wharf Road.
The route will turn left onto Warren Bruce Road and then bear to the right onto Village Way up to Parkway. It then crosses over the Bridgewater Ship Canal before turning right onto Barton Dock Road, terminating outside the intu Trafford Centre.
Work could start on the line this winter – and be operational by 2020/2021.
