In Greater Manchester, 70% of properties are now within 1,500m of a station. Since our previous research, the Metrolink network has expanded further into South Manchester, with a new line running to Manchester Airport via the suburb of Wythenshawe. We’ve also seen the opening of the Ordsall chord, linking Manchester Victoria and Manchester Piccadilly by rail.
As a result, around 80% of properties in the City of Manchester are now within 1km of a station. Elsewhere, Tameside and Trafford are amongst the best served areas, with the latter set to benefit further from the Trafford Park tram link currently under construction.
