Trafford Centre is a proposed tram stop for Greater Manchester's Metrolink light rail system, that would be created to serve passengers boarding and alighting at the Trafford Centre on a new line on the network.

The proposed stop is located adjacent to Barton Dock Road between Ellesmere Circle and Bright Circle.[1]

In 2013, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership announced it may fund the construction of the Trafford line as far as Trafford Centre Metrolink station using the Earnback mechanism of the Greater Manchester City Deal, estimating that the line could be open to passengers by 2018/19 (subject to a satisfactory business case, Transport and Works Act Order and public consultation).[2]

The Metrolink station at the Trafford Centre is endorsed by Intu Properties (the site's owner),[3] and, according to the local transport plans of Transport for Greater Manchester, would be located along a new line routed from Pomona station.[4][5] An alternative route to this proposed stop also feature in Salford City Council's unitary development plan (2004–2016), whereby Metrolink would be expanded to the Trafford Centre from Eccles Interchange via the A57 road at Barton-upon-Irwell.[6]
