victoria goes posh
As part of a wider redevelopment of Victoria Station, we’ve completely transformed the Metrolink stop. The multi-million pound overhaul has made for a bigger and better tram stop putting Metrolink right at the very heart of the new-look station.
With its new lighting, CCTV and customer information, Victoria stop offers a safer, brighter and better customer experience. As well as offering connections on the Bury and Oldham-Rochdale lines, tram services are shuttling to and from the new Exchange Square stop – the first phase of a brand new line that will allow us to run more services through the city.
The Metrolink improvements at Victoria were just part of Network Rail’s wider redevelopment of the iconic station, which is now a modern and exciting gateway to the city. A striking new contemporary roof arcs over the station’s full refurbished concourse and Metrolink stop, making a light, bright and attractive space for passengers.

The Deansgate-Castlefield, Exchange Square and Manchester Victoria elements of Metrolink’s Second City Crossing programme are part-financed by the North West England European Regional Development Fund Programme 2007 to 2013.
