Firstly the new steps to platforms 2/3 are indeed open of a sort..

This is on the lift shaft opposite the new stairs to platform 2/3 but it is still sending you via platform 1


The signs for platform 2/3 remain covered over


Finally is this hut at the end of platform 1 to do with the TMS works?

I'm afraid, the author had a mistake - he said that Metrolink has one platform, but in reality there are two

Manchester Victoria Station

So, today I went to take a few snaps of the spectacle and iconic new structure that is Victoria Station

The shelter on the un-finished Metrolink platform is nearly finished:



Just the side-ETFE panels to be installed now:





I hope this tarpaulin comes down soon:



All the louvre frames are installed between the anchors:





3058:



1CC and 2CC tracks leave Victoria alongside each other:



Very complex wiring structure!:





3021 is just about to leave these glorious, white arches:



I think this Platform A sign is gaining a cult status among the members of this thread:





Vic's starting to live up to the depictions of the Artists' Impressions:



Cigar Alley:



3035, about to traverse the point-work:



More and more of the previously out-of-bound areas are being opened-up:





The destination boards have found a permanent home...



...And the frames that once held them now lay bare:



I bought a Platform Ticket so I could try out the new ticket barriers, and they worked without a hitch:



The effect of the light is outstanding:



The Mezzanine awaits its final coat of cladding:





The juxtaposition of all the variations of brick provides an interesting setting:







Registration Arms:





It's certainly an adjustment for the eyes as you leave Platform 3 for the main concourse!:



Insulators and some copper have cropped up on the gantries:





We haven't seen this angle for a while:







What will this frame hold?:





Barriers...







...and Bananas:



Such a large, open space!:



Wow! I hope that's enough pictures

Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink station

Also, I visited the re-development of the Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink station; designed by Ian Simpson Architects, who also designed the adjacent Beetham Tower

Island platform is looking good:



And the 'Exhumation of the Footbridge' continues:



The steps for the outbound platform are in place now, and the base-layer of the ground level surface has been added:



TMS loop:



A Volker Rail vehicle was at D-C today, however there weren't any workers to accompany it:





A rarer destination:



And a more familiar one:



TMS equipment and foundations:







The point-work looked impressive today, but not nearly as at Victoria, of which photographs are to follow...
