The latest phase of an ambitious multi-million-pound urban transport project will feature toughened architectural laminated coloured glass from Romag.

The glass has been specified as a key aesthetic component of the new St. Peter’s Square tram stop, which is being completed as part of the Greater Manchester Metrolink tramway system.

More than 370 sq. m of 17.5mm thickness heat soaked laminated green-tinted glass, which has been drilled and shaped by Romag for the city centre scheme, will form four eye-catching canopies for passengers sheltering from the elements on two newly built platforms.

The stop also features new passenger safety balustrades constructed from 50 sq. m of toughened laminated clear glass from Romag, which has also supplied the vertical central glass sections designed to support the canopies.

The work was overseen and coordinated by structural steelwork and architectural metalwork fabricators Shawton Engineering following delivery of pre-assembled glass sections to site from its Warrington factory.

The firm provided detailed technical specifications and drawings from which the cutting of the glass sections was completed, as well as final installation expertise and project liaison.

Designed by award winning German architects Latz + Partners, the St. Peter’s Square stop is part of Metrolink’s Second City Crossing project and a key element in the Grow project, an initiative that will see more than £1bn invested into the city centre’s infrastructure by 2017.

Cllr Andrew Fender, chair of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, said: “Once complete, St Peter’s Square will undoubtedly be the jewel in Manchester’s crown.”

This latest work follows earlier Romag contracts to supply glass for the new Exchange Square and Deansgate-Castleford passenger stops in Manchester, as well as for safety walling on a new bridge spanning the locks to provide passenger access to the tram stop.

Romag safety glass is stringently tested to ensure manufacturing processes comply with industry regulations and performance standards. More details at
