New Park and Ride for Trafford Park Line

Parkway Circle is set for a new expanded Park and Ride Facility in Trafford Park. The original plans were for a smaller facility in the roundabout itself.

The killing of rabbits on the circle in preparation for the tram there brought notoriety to the scheme. Manchester Evening News Item

According to the planning application, the new scheme is needed because of changes to the layout and the requirement for better park and ride provision in connection with the Metrolink.

Nb. I’ve asked whether cycle parking is provided within the scheme.
