In 2002, the trackbed of the former South Manchester Loop Line was dug up and strewn with rocks and bits of concrete. Since then, the pedestrian 'Greenway', spearheaded by the Friends of the South Manchester Loop Line, has been extended eastwards, providing a tarmac surface for pedestrians and cyclists as far as Levenshulme.  The view of the bridge at the far end of the former station has been blocked by the embankment built to take the path from the cutting up to street level.

EWM says: It's good that what remains of the line has been adapted, but I preferred it when it was a railway, carrying goods trains between Yorkshire and Trafford Park, and before that, passenger trains to Central Station.
