Edge Lane Metrolink station is a tram stop on the East Manchester Line (EML) of Greater Manchester's light-rail Metrolink system. It opened on 11 February 2013.,[2][3] after a three-day free trial for local residents.[1] The station was constructed as part of Phase 3a of the Metrolink's expansion, and is located at the junction of Manchester Road and Edge Lane,[4] in Droylsden, Tameside, England.


Trams run along the East Manchester line westbound towards Manchester Piccadilly station before continuing through the city centre towards Bury,[3] whilst eastbound trams run to Droylsden, where services will terminate until Winter 2013, when the service is extended Ashton-under-Lyne. Trams run every 12 minutes at peak times; at off-peak times, the service is reduced to every 15 minutes.[5][6][7]
