Amey celebrates Metrolink contract wins 16 December 2021

Amey has won two contracts as part of Transport for Greater Manchester’s Metrolink Capacity Improvement Programme (MCIP) to upgrade the power supply infrastructure and expand the Queens Road Metrolink Depot.

The contracts will now see Amey’s Rail team begin works on both the power supply and depot expansion projects.

The first of the two contracts will involve Amey designing and constructing three new traction power substations at Collyhurst, Heaton Park and Hagside, which are due to be completed in early 2023.

The second contract will see Amey expand the Queens Road Depot to increase its capacity. The works, which are again due to be completed in early 2023, involve installing new and moving existing stabling roads (a place where tram vehicles are parked awaiting usage), installing and modifying overhead line equipment (OLE) and improving telecoms works.
