An update on the Goods Yard proposal. 3 Days ago.

technorthnews.

Today. Robert Phillips of leading architects Cartwright Pickard explains the background to the 475,000sqft Manchester Goods Yard Project;



"Allied London's St John's masterplan will be a new neighbourhood for enterprise,culture and living. It distinguishes itself by its unique cultural history, a diverse mix of inhabitants and a rich context with a mix of buildings new and old, offering residential, leisure, workspaces and art spaces which seek to create a destination but also a community where people will live, work and play.
Providing 475,000sqft of workspace, Manchester Goods Yard is located at the heart of the St John's development.It was conceived as four distinct blocks, linked together at different levels to create dynamic volumes within the building and to allow the subdivision of floor plates whilst maintaining a highly permeable, active ground floor.The building will have a pared back, almost industrial aesthetic, with exposed concrete soffits and columns.The vast factory floors will be able to accommodate a range of businesses and cater for their specific uses and requirements.A simple facade treatment and generous floor to ceiling heights enables various configurations and flexible servicing arrangements.



The upper levels are underpinned by a range of support spaces on the lower levels of the building such as an enterprise/innovation social hub, a creative studio for the creation of online content, shared workspaces for smaller businesses, entrepreneurs and start-ups, a central cycle hub, restaurants, markets and coffee shops. At roof level, there will be a gym,spa, outdoor sports courts and a private members bar/restaurant and a cinema which can be used by tenants and clients. Terraces throughout different levels of the building also provide shared external amenity space.All of these features seek to improve the wellbeing and productivity of those using the building and to create an environment which encourages innovation and collaboration."

Probably something to do with the Romans, and the fact that Manchester's flat landscape makes it easier to plot straight roads on a grid-like structure.
The topography makes a huge difference. Compared and contrast Manchester and Liverpool with Sheffield and Leeds.

The future of rapid transit

Website: Click here

Relevant thread: Click here


TfGM have outlined their plans for the future of rapid transit in Greater Manchester.


Developing Metrolink
  • Work is already well under way to build the new Trafford Park Line, due 2020.

  • We are currently developing a business case for extending the Manchester Airport line, using a £2.1m grant from central government. This is also referred to as the Metrolink ‘Western Loop’.

  • Our short term ambition is for an initial extension to the Manchester Airport Terminal 2 development, and the University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM).

  • We have commissioned engineering, architectural and environmental work, and scheme modelling.


Extra trams
  • Metrolink has a fleet of 120 modern and reliable M5000 trams.

  • Following major expansion, the Metrolink network has grown to carry 40 million passenger journeys a year.

  • We know more trams are needed so that Metrolink can continue to grow and keep people moving. We are currently exploring funding options to buy more trams.


Tram-train services
  • ‘Tram-train’ is a light-rail public transport system where tram services like Metrolink can share lines with conventional trains.

  • In Greater Manchester, it could mean ‘metro-style’ services in more areas.

  • It would help to improve access to the city centre at the busiest times, while also offering more capacity on the suburban rail network.

  • We are currently exploring the potential benefits of introducing tram-trains to the city-region as a way of improving rapid transit connections.

  • A number of routes have been identified as having potential for tram-train, including:

    - Manchester to Marple

    - Manchester to Glossop

    - Manchester to Wigan via Atherton

    - Stockport to Manchester Airport


Underground services in Manchester city centre
  • A detailed study is needed to explore the potential for more capacity for rapid transit through central Manchester to be achieved via a tunnel. This would limit the impact of overground transport services in the growing and busy city centre.

  • A tunnel could support the possible conversion of some existing suburban rail lines to metro-style services.

  • This would be a major investment which will need careful planning.

What's the latest situation with the 'Getmethere' integrated ticketing system? Would make such a big difference to transport once one pass fully covers all train/tram/bus travel within a particular zone.

Still pants sadly, which is an embarrassment. But I'm confident they're working towards something better

The fragmented unregulated bus system seems like a big obstacle, does Andy Burnham get any powers to change that?

It is! And yes he has bus regulation powers but he seems to be more focused on other things at the moment. Hopefully it'll enter the agenda in 2018!
