Following the explosion in the Manchester Arena last week, Northern has announced that the station will open on the morning of Tuesday 30th May 2017.

Northern has announced that rail and tram services to and from Manchester Victoria station will resume normal operation on Tuesday 30 May following the tragic terror attack at Manchester Arena.

The services that will resume are those provided by Northern, TransPennine Express (TPE) and Metrolink.

Liam Sumpter, regional director at Northern, said: “From Tuesday Northern and all other train operators that use Manchester Victoria Station will be operating a full timetable of services.

“It has been an exceptionally difficult week for the whole of Manchester and our thoughts remain with everyone affected by this terrible attack. However, our city is incredibly resilient and everyone has stood side-by-side in an unbelievable way.

“Our team at Victoria are ready to welcome people back to the station and on behalf of Northern, I would like to thank our customers for their understanding over the past seven days.…#157;
