New plan to secure rail services for the north

Quote:
Existing rail services will be maintained and more seats will be offered in the north of England as part of a plan to secure rolling stock.

Quote:
Rail services will be maintained and capacity on key routes will be increased as part of a plan to secure additional rolling stock for the north of England, Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin announced today (8 January 2015).

The plan means that existing rail services will be maintained from May 2015. This follows a decision by rolling stock leasing company Porterbrook to move trains running on the TransPennine Express route to the Chiltern franchise.

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/n...-for-the-north


https://www.gov.uk/government/news/n...-for-the-north

In addition, the Department for Transport has agreed a plan with the operators of the Northern and TransPennine Express routes to offer more carriages and seats.

Patrick McLoughlin said:

Rail services across the north are vital for passengers and for the economy. By helping people access work and leisure more easily, we are securing long-term economic growth across the region.

That is why we have worked hard with Northern and TransPennine Express to ensure we expand services and enhance passenger journeys.

Over the coming months, the agreement will deliver a number of benefits to passengers.

More carriages between Manchester and Blackpool

Capacity on selected services between Blackpool North and Manchester Airport / Manchester Oxford Road will be increased, providing extra seats for the benefit of passengers in destinations including Preston, Bolton and Salford.
Additional capacity on Cumbrian Coast services

Longer trains will provide extra capacity to Carlisle, Maryport, Workington, Whitehaven, Sellafield and Barrow-in-Furness, with potential to create additional jobs. There will also be an enhanced early-morning service from Carlisle to Sellafield, arriving in time for the morning shift at the power station.
Electric trains on Manchester Victoria to Liverpool and Liverpool to Preston routes

Refreshed electric trains, providing faster, smoother and greener journeys, will be rolled out on busy commuter routes between Liverpool and Manchester Victoria from May, at a faster rate than previously planned. In addition, refreshed electric trains will be rolled out on the Liverpool to Preston route in the autumn. This will free up existing diesel trains to create additional capacity elsewhere on the north’s network.
Revised services for South Cumbria and Windermere

A new 10:53am service from Windermere to Manchester Airport will be introduced, while the existing 1:33pm service from Barrow-in-Furness to Manchester Airport will depart at 12:13pm to provide more balanced services throughout the day. The 6:18am Manchester Airport to Barrow-in-Furness service will no longer run, but a new, direct 5:14pm service from Manchester Oxford Road to Barrow-in-Furness will be introduced, with a connection for Windermere.
Revised services on the South TransPennine route

An hourly service will be maintained between Manchester Airport, Sheffield, Doncaster and Cleethorpes. The vast majority of these will remain as direct services. Limited amends are planned, with customers for the 3:55pm between Manchester Airport and Cleethorpes and the 4:26pm Cleethorpes to Manchester Airport needing to change at Doncaster.
Services between Manchester, West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Yorkshire Coast, Humberside and the Northeast

All services will be operated with a minimum of 3 carriages or 181 seats, whereas at present some services on the route are operated by 2 carriage trains with 116 seats.

Nick Donovan, Managing Director for First TransPennine Express (FTPE) said:

A great deal of background work has been undertaken by ourselves, Northern Rail and the Department for Transport that seeks to ensure capacity and frequency of FTPE services across our network is maintained for the timetable change in May 2015.

I am delighted that we have been able to work together and develop a plan that aims to protect rail services for the huge majority of customers in the north of England and, indeed, deliver some additional capacity at a time when demand across our network is higher than ever.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director, Northern Rail said:

Rail travel is increasingly popular in the north of England placing capacity at a premium. That is why we have been working with First TransPennine Express and the Department for Transport to ensure customers would not be disadvantaged by the loss of some FTPE trains.

In doing so we are delighted to be able to provide more seats for customers on some of our busiest routes. Through deploying more electric trains to take advantage of newly electrified routes, we are able to help maintain capacity for FTPE and add more seats for customers in Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

Changes to trains serving Manchester Airport

​There will be changes to trains serving Manchester Airport later this month and into February as work to deliver a new fourth platform at its railway station is completed.

Only two platforms will be in use between Sunday 11 and Saturday 17 January and the station will then be closed to all trains until Monday 9 February.

In addition, between Saturday 17 January and midday on Sunday 18 January, Metrolink services between the Wythenshawe Town Centre and Airport stops will be replaced with like-for-like bus services.
Does anyone knows what is like-for-like buses?

More tours along the future Trafford Park extension, with some blueprints added from TfGM:

Thanks for those drawings, telstar. They now seem to confirm that Wharfside stop will actually be in the middle of Trafford Wharf Road, which will be closed to all other traffic roughly between Wharf End and Sir Alex Ferguson Way (formerly Waters Reach). This is fairly heavily used by traffic at present, which will presumably have to be diverted via Sir Alex Way to gain access to Trafford Road and White City Circle via Wharfside Way :-



And contrary to the cycling lobby’s somewhat emotive assertion that the alignment would “smash through Sam Platt’s”, the plans seem to show that the pub itself will actually be avoided and left intact apart from the car park approach. I hope that one day Metrolink will help it to come back to life properly :-



After arriving at Sam Platt’s car park via the old goods alignment, it will now swing left into the road towards the Premier Inn :-





Looking West along Trafford Wharf Road from Wharf End, this is the section of highway that will be closed to traffic, with the alignment climbing in from the right :-



The tramstop will be located approximately where the bus is now – a situation slightly analogous to Oldham Central, except it will be two side platforms :-



Just before the Premier Inn, an occupational road now branches off to the left, so perhaps there will still need to be vehicular access here. I think that is Giggsie’s new hotel at the top left :-



As originally planned, this was going to be the Metrolink route via Victoria Place, (as I investigated in May 2010) :-



It would have been a ready-made alignment much closer to Man U, but hey-ho :-



However, the stop will not be too far away from the stadium - probably about the same as at Man City. Here is a view of the tramstop location looking the other way towards the East :-





The stadium is just a short walk away at the top of Sir Alex Way :-



Facing the other way, the alignment will now recede through this car park towards the new exciting ‘waters-edge’ section :-





The deviation has made the alignment more curvaceous as it re-joins Trafford Wharf Road near the Imperial War Museum :-



The triple turnback formation (over the crack) at Warren Bruce Road, and through the roundabout to Village stop at the top of Third Avenue :-



On to Parkway :-





I think the tram will have its own bridge over the Bridgewater Canal, then round into yet another Metrolink ‘City’ and finally (for now) the Trafford Centre itself :-





But will the destination be ‘Trafford Centre’ or ‘Trafford Park’ ? All will be revealed in the fullness of time . . .

Hi dimlys, this I suspect means, when a tram service is suspended for what ever reason- but usually planned engineering works, TfGM will put in place a replacement bus service, this where ever possible will follow the route the tram will normally take, of course this will be subject to traffic systems etc and buses will use the nearest bus stop to the tram stop.

Deansgate-Castlefield Access Changes...

Work continues at pace on the redevelopment of the above...

Quote:
12 January 2015

Changes to access as work continues at Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink stop

Work to completely modernise the old Exhibition footbridge linking Deansgate train station with the nearby Metrolink stop will begin next week.

The footbridge will be closed from Monday 19 January onwards as major refurbishments continue at the city centre Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink stop.

Last month a brand new section of tram line and a large island platform opened at the stop, which is being completely renewed as part of a major programme of works to expand the tram network through the city centre.

From next Monday, passengers switching between Metrolink and rail services will be able to use the steps at the First Street end of the viaduct.

Passengers requiring a step-free route from Metrolink to Deansgate rail station are advised to use the St Peter’s Square tram stop instead.

A signed, suitable step-free walking route between St Peter’s Square and Deansgate rail station will be in place. Alternatively, passengers can travel on to Piccadilly station for direct step-free links between trains and trams.

Passengers travelling between Deansgate rail station and Manchester Victoria or Shudehill also have the option of using the free and frequent Metroshuttle 2 bus service, which has stops right outside Deansgate rail station.

The Deansgate-Castlefield stop transformation will be completed this summer, when step-free access will be restored and improved as a modernised footbridge reopens alongside a brand new lift at the Deansgate end of the stop.

When the expanded stop is completed, the new additional tram line will give much greater service flexibility by allowing trams to turn back in both directions.

The next stage of city centre tram stop improvement work follows this summer, when work begins on a new four platform stop at St Peter’s Square.

The footbridge refurbishment is being carried out with funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Stop improvement works are part of the wider Metrolink Second City Crossing expansion programme (2CC).

For more information visit www.transformationinformation.co.uk or contact the Future Metrolink team by calling 0161 244 1555 (during office hours) or emailing [email protected].

Northern transport priorities announced...


Quote:
Regional leaders from across the north of England took part in the first Transport for the North project board meeting yesterday, with discussions on how to deliver an integrated 15-year transport strategy.

The meeting in Leeds was attended by transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin and was the first step in drawing up and delivering a programme of strategic investment into the North's infrastructure.

With a broad remit, Transport for the North will look at east-west rail links, roads, ports and airports as well as broadband, devolved powers, smart ticketing and how this inter-connectivity would work with and complement the UK's other regions and HS2.

To coincide with the meeting, transport leaders across the North West announced their priorities for the Transport for the North agenda.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson and Cllr Nick Forbes, leader of Newcastle City Council, issued a joint statement supporting coast-to-coast transport improvements which could cut journey times between the two cities by up to an hour.

Anderson said: "If we want to rebalance the economy, we also have to rebalance transport spending. Government has invested billions on Crossrail in London and continues to spend significantly more per capita in London than it does across the entire north.

"In Liverpool, our port is busier than ever and we are investing to grow it significantly over the next few years. We have to make sure we have the transport infrastructure in place to be able to carry freight and passengers across the north if we are to maximise the benefits. It's only with this approach that the whole of the UK economy will benefit."

Transport for Greater Manchester called for changes to the management of local railway stations to enable long-term investment and prevent them from "falling into sharp decline".

Railway stations across Greater Manchester are managed by train operating companies on a short term basis, or by Network Rail. TfGM said that the stations would be better managed and run locally, on longer leases.

To enable this, it has asked that the Government leaves this option open as part of the refranchising of Northern Rail and First TransPennine services which is due to begin in the next few months.

Cllr Andrew Fender, chairman of TfGM, said: "The majority of Greater Manchester's 97 rail stations are old, over 80% are more than 100 years old, and many of them have remained fundamentally unchanged in that time, with 52 of them currently classed as inaccessible.

"We believe that by handing control of stations to Greater Manchester we can address the issue of under-investment and place them at the heart of an integrated network, providing transport hubs where buses, trains and, in some places, trams all connect and make journeys easier and more comfortable.

"We have a golden opportunity here, one that has to be seized. There is a very real and significant risk that while every other part of our transport network will improve through devolution, our rail stations will remain largely stagnant, inaccessible and fit for the 19th Century."

Transport for the North, an alliance of the North's key authorities and agencies, was set up by the Government in October.

It is led by the city regions that made up One North: Greater Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Sheffield and Newcastle, together with Hull and the Humber, working in collaboration with the Department for Transport, Highways Agency, Network Rail, and HS2.

Transport for the North will jointly produce an interim report in March 2015.

Proposals that Transport for the North is considering include:

More trains, more seats and quicker journey times on faster, more frequent interconnected rail services running on electrified lines. Currently, east-west journeys take almost twice as long as equivalent journeys in the south
A high-speed east-west railway linking Liverpool, Manchester, Sheffield, Leeds, Hull and Newcastle
Improved access to Manchester Airport
Building in sustainable connections with other proposed schemes such as HS2, Atlantic Gateway, the East Coast Mainline and Northern Hub. Liverpool's planned superport will almost double in handling capacity by 2030, all of which will need to be distributed around the UK
Providing additional capacity on the North's roads for both freight and personal travel through extended managed motorways, addressing gaps in the network, reliance on the M62 and improving links to ports
A digital infrastructure enabling real-time information, greater network resilience and faster connections between key areas to personal and business users.
Improved access to enable efficient freight movements by rail, road and water including ports, rail links and distribution centres
Building HS2 early, extending phase one to Crewe and bringing forwards the delivery of HS2 between Leeds and Sheffield
Improving east/west rail freight capability across the Pennines, linking major ports to north/south rail routes

Metrolink Trafford Centre Line...

These photographs encompass two developments, a new Apartment block on Salford Quays, which will be a large development and will feature on another thread in its own right, and the Trafford Centre Line, both will be in close proximity as time will show...

Now we have more information from to-day's MEN as to the plans for this area :-

http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....alford-8430596

Basically, on Thursday Salford Council will approve plans for a new block of skyscrapers on the opposite bank (Clippers Quay), with a yet another new bridge over the Ship Canal to the future Wharfside tramstop. This will replace the old Detroit Bridge (now moved to Huron basin near The Lowry Mall), part of which used to be the bit of Sam Platt's over the water :-



Unfortunately the pub below will be demolished...



Here is the old swing bridge, now painted red in its new location :-

Altrincham Interchange is fast approaching completion, went down and took a few photos yesterday around the railway station only...

The old stair/footbridge entrance has been bricked up ..


The new entrance is looking good on one side...


Not sure about the railings on the other side; they are having a tidy up though...


They seem to be building up a timber 'end/make up piece'...




The lift on 2/3 seems to be progressing

Landmark year for Metrolink as Airport line takes off...

*Originally posted by ro2bapurdie...

Quote:
The new 15-stop Metrolink line to Manchester Airport is off to a flying start with more than 266,000 passengers using the line in its first few months.

The news comes as passengers opted to make a record-breaking 30 million journeys by tram in 2014, able to travel further afield on new lines to town centres in Rochdale, Oldham, Wythenshawe and beyond.

Metrolink, now the largest light rail network in the UK, covers almost 60 miles, with a fleet of close to 100 trams running to 92 stops across Greater Manchester.

Last year’s major expansion of the tram network brought with it more places to travel to for leisure and work as Metrolink spurred on local regeneration and economic development, as well as boosting house prices in areas it runs through.

Work is now well under way on the Second City Crossing through Manchester, due to open in 2017 when the Metrolink fleet will be 120-vehicles strong – meaning more seats on trams and more frequent services running through transformed city centre stops.

It’s expected that by end of the decade over 40 million passenger journeys could be made by Metrolink every year, helping to tackle congestion and move more people around Greater Manchester for work and play.

Councillor Andrew Fender, Chair of the TfGM Committee, said: “2014 was a landmark year for Metrolink, with the launch of three new lines meaning local residents and visitors chose to make well over 30 million journeys a year by tram, which is a staggering number.

“Metrolink now offers more journey opportunities than ever before – helping more people get to jobs and leisure in more of our local town centres, where the new tram lines are acting as a real catalyst for regeneration.

“We opened the new Airport extension through Wythenshawe over a year early and I’m not surprised to see it doing so well, offering a first class way to get around to 15 new stops.

“With a multi-million pound expansion and stop improvement programme taking place through the city centre, and plans for a new line to Trafford Park and the Trafford Centre gaining momentum, it’s an exciting time for Metrolink.”

The Metrolink network is benefiting from a £1.5 billion investment in new lines, new trams and stop improvements, including major overhauls of the Deansgate-Castlefield, Victoria and St Peter’s Square stops to help them cope with millions more passenger journeys.

In November last year, £350m funding was also confirmed for a new line to Trafford Park and the Trafford Centre.

This year will also see the roll-out of smart ticketing to the tram network, offering a faster, easier, more flexible and hassle-free way to travel by tram.
http://www.tfgm.com/Corporate/media_...?articleId=60
*I see more then 266,000 passengers have travel on Airport line since it opened on 3rd November which is quite good to say it didn't touch City centre

No trains to Manchester Airport from Saturday 17 January to Sunday 8 February 2015

Quote:
Network Rail are investing over £1bn in the railway across the north of England and as part of this Manchester Airport is being upgraded. This will allow more services and a better access to the airport.

The upgrade includes, a fourth platform being built with new track work and signalling also being installed. Most of the work has been carried out with little disruption to passengers but to complete the platform work and install the new track and signalling there is no alternative but to close the station. As a result, there will be no trains to / from Manchester Airport

The few OHL poles that had their nut and bolt base above ground level have received shoes too, though I still don't know why these few poles bases protruded to begin with.
