Manchester Metrolink interchange approved

A new £6.7 million transport hub in Manchester has been given the go-ahead by city officials.

The Wythenshawe Interchange, which is due to open in 2015, will be built next to the Metrolink stop in Wythenshawe town centre.

Councillor Andrew Fender, chairman of the Transport for Greater Manchester committee (TfGM), said: “It will give the community a modern transport hub with state-of-the-art facilities in addition to being a great advantage for local businesses and employers.

“It will also capitalise on the arrival of Metrolink in Wythenshawe, as part of the new line being built to Manchester Airport, by giving passengers a modern, easy and attractive way of switching from the tram to the bus and vice versa.”
