Last week's photo showed the construction of the tram terminus in Ashton. Here we see the lines being laid alongside Lord Sheldon Way as it passes Sainsburys. The roadway here was deliberately built with a wide central reservation to accommodate the tram lines.
The site currently looks a mess but when the work is finished a strip of grass will be reinstated alongside.
