Timperley is a tram stop on the Altrincham Line of Greater Manchester's light-rail Metrolink system. It is located in western Timperley about a mile west of Timperley Village centre, and opened on 15 June 1992 as part of Phase 1 of Metrolink's expansion. Prior to this it was a railway station.


The station originally opened on 20 July 1849 by the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway (MSJAR). It was closed as a British Rail station on 24 December 1991 to permit conversion of the line for its current use. It reopened as a Metrolink station on 15 June 1992.

The canopy on the Manchester platform was demolished in August 2009. The former booking office was used as a taxi office for several years up to 2003 and in Spring 2010 was converted for use as a coffee shop.

Trams also head towards Etihad Campus and Deansgate-Castlefield, with the Monday to Saturday daytime service running every 12 minutes each to Etihad Campus or Deansgate-Castlefield, while evening and Sundays journeys run to Etihad Campus or Piccadilly only.[1]
