The picture is looking westwards across Oldham Road. One set of rails is coming straight towards the camera while the other set can be seen a little to the left. The Ashton tram terminus is behind me. The trams already run as far as Droylsden and the rest of the line to Ashton will open later in the year.
The track is complete and workmen are finishing off paving and landscaping. Trams have already been to this location on test in the small hours of the night. Metrolink are being a little vague about when the line will be open for service and I suspect that they will need to wait until enough new trams have been delivered.
