Baguley Metrolink station is a station for phase 3B of the Manchester Metrolink to Manchester Airport. It opened on 3 November 2014.[1] It is on Southmoor Road next to Roundthorn Industrial Estate and the Royal Oak Tesco.[2]

It is proposed to link with a proposed station in a future Northern Rail line from Altrincham to Stockport.

Services[edit]

Metrolink[edit]

Trams are initially scheduled to run along the Airport line towards Cornbrook northbound and towards Manchester Airport southbound. Trams will run every 12 minutes.[1]

Proposed Rail services[edit]

Trains are scheduled to run along the Stockport-Altrincham line between Manchester Piccadilly station and Chester, where trains currently run every hour in the off-peak period. However, additional trains are proposed between Greenbank and Stockport[3] which could give Baguley 4 trains per hour.
