Coronation Street complains about Manchester trams

ITV has formally objected to a plan by Transport for Greater Manchester to increase frequency of its tram services, as the noise could disrupt filming on Coronation Street.

A spokesperson for ITV said: "We were obviously unaware of plans for the newly proposed tram route when we made the decision to move to Trafford and, having carried out our own tests, we have serious concerns about its impact on the production of Coronation Street.

"We are in discussions with Transport for Greater Manchester to explore what mitigation it can offer to ensure we are able to continue filming Coronation Street uninterrupted."

The Trafford Line was first proposed back in 1992; Pomona Metrolink station was built with a very obvious junction ready for the line to carry on over the wharf. If ITV were completely unaware of the plans before they moved to Salford Quays, they need to sack their surveyors.

So it might actually sound like real life on the cobbles?
Heaven forbid.

How dare the needs of ordinary Manchester citizens to move about efficiently take priority over filming this high quality and polished production. This is one show where every detail is pitch perfect, the wigs are coiffed to look natural, the make up, the acting, the dialogue, the characters, the stories. Nothing should be changed about the way this show produced.
