Merseytram Development Schedule
The following was the schedule of the original scheme which was abandoned in 2005. If the project is re-started, construction might commence in 2009.
1st July 2005
Construction work will begin.
On the fiftieth anniversary of the closure of the previous system, it is hoped that the City Centre Loop and Line One will begin operating, to Croxteth and Kirkby.
Line Two begins operating to Prescot and Whiston Hospital.
Line Three begins operating to Garston, Speke and Liverpool Airport.
Longer term aspirations include extending Line Two to Saint Helens, and Line Three to Runcorn via the new river crossing.
