Metrolink to call at new Oldham to Rochdale line stops

The first Metrolink services will arrive at Derker and Shaw & Crompton this weekend.

The first in-service tram to arrive at Derker is due to leave the Oldham Mumps stop on Sunday at around 6.50am and arrive at 6.54am. The same tram is then due to arrive at Shaw & Crompton at around 6.59am.

Councillor Andrew Fender, chair of the Transport for Greater Manchester Committee (TfGM), said: “Today is another historic moment for the Metrolink network as we signal the launch of even more new services on Sunday.

“The new Metrolink line to Oldham Mumps has already proved to be a fantastic addition to what Oldham has to offer and I’m sure that these two new stops will be very popular with new and existing passengers alike.

“As the leader of the steering group that developed the blueprint for the Metrolink network almost 30 years ago – a blueprint that included the conversion of the Oldham Loop Line – witnessing this milestone is very pleasing indeed and I look forward to reaching Rochdale railway station.”
