Overnight works required as part of the overall testing programme for the overhead power lines installed along the Metrolink route is due to take place on several evenings in July, currently anticipated to be the 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17, and the also weekend of 20 and 21 July - these dates may change as work progresses.
The overnight work will be undertaken between the hours of midnight and 7am during engineering hours when there are no passenger services in operation to Rochdale Railway Station stop.
The work will take place along the route of the Rochdale town centre Metrolink extension, from the railway station to Smith Street. Metrolink does not anticipate this work causing disturbance to local residents, however, workers and equipment may be seen on site on site during these times.
The installed overhead line equipment is to be considered as 'live at all times'.
