Manchester Metrolink

The Manchester Metrolink tram network consists of seven lines which radiate from Manchester city centre and is owned by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and operated and maintained under contract by RATP Group.

Waterman has been working on the network for 15 years providing engineering services to TfGM, RATP and design and build contractors.

We have been involved in a wide range of projects including;

Inspection Programme
We have carried out inspection programmes of many of the viaducts, bridges and tunnels on the network ensuring the safety of the network.

Withins Lane Bridge Replacement, Bury
Routine patrols had discovered the timber deck was failing. Waterman undertook an emergency inspection to determine the scope of severe deterioration and subsequently undertook a detailed assessment of the bridge which highlighted the areas of deficiency and then undertook a feasibility study for the replacement options. Waterman was appointed to complete detailed design and drawing.

Manchester Metrolink Platform Upgrades
Waterman was appointed to design and detail schemes at each platform to bring the platform levels into compliance with the Disability Descrimination Act.
