Looks like we are good to go.

LANS to transform the former site of Worsley New Hall into a new 154-acre garden have passed the final stage of approval, with RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) staff now working towards a 2019 opening.

Salford City Council’s planning panel granted permission in principle for the £30m garden last month, but plans had to go before the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government because the Peel-owned site sits within the green belt.

While residents may welcome news of a significant green space, of which many believe Greater Manchester has a shortage, the main focus for Worsley’s revitalised garden is tourism. If predictions of one million annual visitors are realised, the historic grounds would be Greater Manchester’s most popular attraction.

Is this scheme contributing anything to increasing capacity on the M60? Peel's trafford centre and other nearby schemes already cause gridlock in this part of the network at times which, to date, they've done nothing to help alleviate.

it has long been suggested by Salford City council to trsm the disused Little Hulton to Eccles rail line, which would be 2km at the nearest to the Gardens, but to be honest I can not see this massively impacting on the motorways around here Matt.I think the smart conversion is causing the hold ups. Ever running, ever running conversions.

A million visitors per annum, most arriving at the same times people will be trying to get to the Traffic Centre, which already backs the motorway up, and not a penny in S106 monies to make improvements.
