Trafford Centre is a tram stop under construction for Greater Manchester's Metrolink light rail system, that will be created to serve passengers boarding and alighting at the Trafford Centre on a new line on the network.

The stop will be located adjacent to Barton Dock Road between Ellesmere Circle and Bright Circle.[1]

In 2013, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership announced it may fund the construction of the Trafford line as far as Trafford Centre Metrolink station using the Earnback mechanism of the Greater Manchester City Deal, estimating that the line could be open to passengers by 2018/19 (subject to a satisfactory business case, Transport and Works Act Order and public consultation).[2]

The Metrolink stop at the Trafford Centre is endorsed by Intu Properties (the site's owner),[3] and will be located along a new line routed from Pomona stop.[4][5] An alternative route to this proposed stop also featured in Salford City Council's unitary development plan (2004–2016), whereby Metrolink would be expanded to the Trafford Centre from Eccles Interchange via the A57 road at Barton-upon-Irwell.[6]
