Go Traffic Management provided vital traffic management solutions to support the construction of the £350million Manchester Metrolink Trafford Park Line extension. The construction was led by a consortium, MPT between Laing O’Rourke, VolkerRail and Thales.
Work took place across the busy City covering 5.5km and safety, along with minimal disruption was of paramount importance. Go Traffic Management was a major construction supplier to the project and provided full traffic management solutions from, initial traffic design to delivery. The GTM team ensured the latest equipment was used and drew from their years of experience on complex projects to provide effective traffic management solutions.
The project was highly successful, with work completing seven months early in March 2020. It demonstrated best practice in health, safety and wellbeing, innovative solutions and collaboration.
The expansion of the Manchester Metrolink transport network is a great addition for Manchester as the extended Metrolink will help reduce congestion on the roads and make public transport around Manchester more accessible for its residents, commuters and visitors.
GTM is delighted to be a part of helping improve the air quality of the City and are honoured to be shortlisted for the two awards – Safety Initiative of the Year and Infrastructure Achievement of the Year.
