Chorlton trams opens Thursday?

As the previous piece about tram testing has been so popular I pass this on as a public service announcement. According to the man working on the testing today the line will be open tomorrow (Thursday 7th July). There is nothing to indicate this is the case…

…either at the station or on the Metrolink website other than the addition of Chorlton in the station listings…

Update: Now confirmed on the Metrolink site.
