Welcome pieeater!

Thanks for your comments, really pleased to hear you've found this community and that you like what you see. There's an amazingly high standard of often well informed debate here, and a lot of passion for the city and the life of the city.

Probably many of us lack a basic understanding of Civil Engineering so anything you can explain will be very welcome.

For a start, I can't believe there were so many holes in Stanley St. Is that why the bridge lift slipped from December to February?

I can't go into specifics on a forum. But for the 2 crane lifts, foundations needed to be constructed for each of the legs (of the cranes) The ground underneath the road is best described as soup! That's the short version. Next time you are passing the site ask one of the team for me and ill take time out to speak to you.

They'd know who I am. Not that hard to guess. Obviously not going to put my name on here!

Hmmm, surely you could've simply asked your boss for a raise instead of going through the trouble of posting here and hoping he reads the comment Hehehe

It looks like all new paving and landscaping supplies were being delivered today for Stanley Street.

Looks like it will become a new district like Spinningfields.

Quote:
New Bailey will be the new commercial quarter at the heart of the development of Salford Central.

Linking with Chapel Street and the historic heart of Salford, the New Bailey location currently consists of vacant land around Salford Central Station and the riverbank opposite Manchester’s successful business district of Spinningfields.

New Bailey will build its own distinct identity by making the most of its riverside location between important city routes. The area’s historic railway arches will be home to leisure, food and shopping outlets. A new pedestrian bridge crossing over the River Irwell will connect New Bailey to Spinningfields, expanding the the region’s commercial centre over the river.

Improvements to Salford Central Station will see increased rail services and the creation of another transport hub for the region.

So, the name of "Salford Central" station then. If it was changed in the near future, would it become Spinningfields, or New Bailey?

From the cesspit river photo with the flags above the Mark Addy they say 'M3', has someone not just added 'ANCHESTER' in between

Why would it be called anything other than Salford Central Station? It was called Salford in 1838, when it opened as the terminus of the Manchester, Bolton, and Bury Railway (which never reached Bury!).It has been known as Salford (apart from a brief period 1858-65, when it was called Salford-New Bailey Street) up to 1988. When the Windsor Link opened, it was called Salford Central (presumably to avoid confusion with the new Salford Crescent station.) After all, it's in Salford and adjacent to Chapel Street, the main roadway through the central district of the town.

New Bailey, Central Salford, IN Salford, Manchester 3. That is what those flags say. Identity crisis and confusion from some dip shit marketing person. Just 1 name would be fine and Salford Central (even though it's not central) is a name at least some locals who use the station know, the others are not needed.
