UK Trams portal

Pomona is a tram stop on the Eccles Line of Greater Manchester's light rail Metrolink system. It opened to passengers on 12 June 1999, as part of Phase 2 of the network's expansion, at Pomona Docks in Old Trafford.

It was one of the least-used stops on the Metrolink network in 2016.[1] However, allowance has been made in its design to support its development as an interchange station between the Eccles Line and the Trafford Park Line (to the Trafford Centre via Trafford Park) which is under construction.

Pomona tram stop is at the edge of the now disused Pomona Docks owned by the Peel Group.
