The Manchester Evening News reports that the lines are included in a draft of the Local Transport Plan document, due to be presented to the government in March next year.
The proposed Stockport line would run on from the forthcoming Didsbury extension of the currently under-construction Chorlton line. The Trafford Centre line, meanwhile, would serve Old Trafford stadium and Imperial War Museum North en route.
No funding is yet in place for either line, but it’s good to see that they’re still on the local government ‘wish list’. Other items included in the document are other recurring nuggets like smartcards, rapid transit routes and a new Stockport interchange.
