Exchange Square Metrolink Stop


Client | Transport for Greater Manchester

Main Contractor | MPT

New island-style platform that maximises pedestrian space, minimises its impact on the adjacent square and reduces platform clutter. Four bespoke, brightly coloured floating roofs identify the Metrolink stop as a ’pavilion’ within Exchange Square and ensure that it is visible in long views along Corporation Street. On stop ‘furniture’ such as information displays and seating is integrated into polished concrete columns to give the stop a clean, uncluttered design.
