Manchester's Ordsall Chord clears legal hurdle
Thursday, October 15, 2015



THE Planning Court in London has rejected a legal challenge against the construction of Manchester's £85m Ordsall Curve, a key component of the Northern Hub programme of capacity enhancements, which will enable the operation of 700 more trains per day on the railway network in northern England

The link between Manchester's Oxford Road and Victoria stations will enable services from Manchester Airport to the northeast to cross the city without reversing at Piccadilly, eliminating conflicts in the congested station throat and enabling the operation of two new fast trains per hour between Victoria and Liverpool

A daylight 2CC survey from today starting at Victoria once again.

The Long Millgate area seems ready now. All traffic signals up but bagged.

P1150036 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

That big hole by Todd Street junction has been filled with concrete and awaits surfacing.

P1150044 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Although they don't show up very well in todays photos it looks as though all the headspans across Corporation Street are now in place. Also Corporation Street has all its road marking now.

P1150045 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The arrangement over the junction at Withy Grove is very neat and almost invisible. It uses just 2 building fixings and 2 poles discretely set back from the road. Again it very hard to make out in this photo.

P1150047a by Steve Hyde, on Flickr.

Another twin cantilever pole has been erected at the Victoria end of the stop.

P1150050 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

and this area is a mass of paving work now.

P1150049 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The headspans over the stop are now up.

P1150052 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Beyond the stop the poles now have their cantilever arms in place.

P1150054 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150060 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150062 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Interestingly at the end of Corporation Street where I noticed marking for building fixings on the end of the Arndale Centre last week, the markings are still there but a pole has now been erected. You should be just about able to see the position marked within the lighter grey square in the marble just behind the pole. They must have had second thoughts about building fixings here.

P1150064 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

I Can't see it being long before the contact wire is strung now.

Going back to the crossover Thales were working on the points today.

P1150055 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150059 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Over on Cross Street United Utilities contractors are still at work. But up at the Princess Street end the second curve is well advanced now.

P1150070 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150073 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Yet more old track has appeared.

P1150071 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

In St peters Square steady progress on the overall site.

What I suspect is the start of the foundation for the inbound island platform has been poured.

P1150074 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150078 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Here the paired sets of ducts appearing through the stone would appear to mark the positions of the 2CC outbound (nearest pair) and 1CC inbound (far pair) tracks.

P1150078 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150076 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

I'm not sure what this line of piles represents but they seem to have appeared this week.

P1150080 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The last of the old track on Lower Mosley Street has now gone.

P1150101 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The only bit left now is that which crosses Peter Street/Oxford Street.

The interlaced track / presorting points are now fully assembled.

P1150092 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150096 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150097 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Manchester Metrolink operations shortlist announced
17 Oct 2015



UK: Transport for Greater Manchester announced on October 16 that it had shortlisted four bidders for the contract to operate and maintain the Metrolink tram network from 2017.

The shortlisted bidders are incumbent RATP Dev, KeolisAmey, National Express Group and Transdev.

TfGM expects to issue an invitation to negotiate in early 2016, with contract signature scheduled for January 2017. There will be a six-month mobilisation period before the new 10-year operating contract starts in July 2017

Manchester Second City Cross line pictures that I took today.

Rebuild of new St Peter Square stop.









Moving over to Cross St where north board line is coming on nicely.











Now to where main action is taking place at bottom of Arndale shopping centre.





On 17th & 18th October overhead wires was put up on new 2CC line between Victoria (Corporation St) to Exchange Square, knowing you probably can't see the wires here are some picture of new wires anyway.









Nice to see them remove wood board and have metal fences around Exchange Square stop which you can get some good shots of station.







Over at Deansgate and new lift now have Metrolink logo and Deansgate-Castlefield name on it.



Trams at Deansgate-Castlefield stop.

Metrolink trams will be running to Exchange Square before Christmas, with work gathering pace to finish the new city centre Metrolink stop in the run up to the busy festive period.

Work is now well advanced on the new Exchange Square stop, taking shape on Corporation Street outside Manchester Arndale, as part of Metrolink’s transformational Second City Crossing.

A significant milestone, the opening of the new Exchange Square stop will allow Metrolink to run more frequent trams between Shaw and Crompton, Oldham and the city, ahead of the whole Second City Crossing being completed in 2017.

Work to build the stop and lay new Second City Crossing tracks on the section of the new line between Manchester Victoria and Exchange Square was fast-tracked thanks a major European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) grant.

The stop’s ‘island-style’ platform structure with fully accessible ramp is now substantially complete. Tram tracks have been laid either side of the stop and a striking coloured steel and glass canopy – with four ‘floating’ overlapping glazed roof panels – has also been installed.

On stop ‘furniture’ such as passenger information displays and seating is being integrated into polished concrete columns to give the stop a clean, uncluttered design.

Councillor Jim McMahon, Leader of Oldham Council and Transport Lead for the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, said: “The new Exchange Square stop is already looking impressive and it will be a great addition to this busy area of the city.

“In the short term it means a more frequent service between Shaw and Crompton, Oldham and the city centre but crucially, in future, the completed Second City Crossing will allow Metrolink to run more frequent and reliable tram services through our expanding city.

“That means improved access to jobs, shops, culture and leisure right across the region, boosting local economies as well as Manchester city centre.”

Peter Cushing, TfGM’s Metrolink Director, said: “Thanks to European funding we’ve fast-tracked work to lay new Second City Crossing tracks between Manchester Victoria and Exchange Square, where the new stop is really taking shape.

“All along we’ve been hoping to get the Exchange Square stop up and running before Christmas, and it’s great to see we’re on track to meet that target.

“The new stop will be a great addition to this lively area of the city and we look forward to helping even more people come into the very heart of Manchester.”

TfGM and Manchester City Council have worked with architects to ensure that the tram stop makes the most of limited space in Exchange Square while keeping plenty of room for pedestrians.

Councillor Kate Chappell, Manchester City Council's executive member for the environment, said: “The opening of the Exchange Square tram stop is not only great news for people coming into the city centre from Oldham and parts of north Manchester to enjoy festive events and other attractions, it is also an important step in opening up the Second City Crossing, which will revolutionise public transport across the city.”

An opening date for the stop will be confirmed by TfGM nearer the time.

The new Second City Crossing line will start on Lower Mosley Street and run through St Peter’s Square, down Princess Street, along Cross Street and Corporation Street and into Manchester Victoria station.

As part of the Second City Crossing project the Deansgate-Castlefield stop has been completely transformed, and work is under way to build a brand new tram stop in St Peter’s Square, which is being relocated and expanded from two platforms to four.

The Second City Crossing is part of a co-ordinated three-year programme of works, known collectively as Grow, which will enable Manchester city centre to flourish for years to come.

Between now and 2017, the city centre will see more than £1bn of investment in projects to lay the foundations for continuing success by ‘future proofing’ the city’s transport infrastructure. Also under the Grow umbrella are a series of major regeneration projects. Together they add up to a wave of investment unprecedented since the mid-1990s.

If you look at these 2 photos the first shows the old kerb line in the foreground with the new kerb line just visible beyond the cable chambers in the background.

P1070530 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

This shows the new kerb line close up.

P1070531 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Also on Corporation Street between Market Street and Exchange Square the pavement on the east side seems to be very much wider than it was previously.

P1140713 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

As for whether work beyond King Street will be complete before November 14th I don't know but it isn't really possible to demobilise the construction team and lay them off for that period. It may be that some adjustment of the worksite can be made on one side to improve pedestrian flows whilst working on the other track.

My weekly walk along 2CC this time from Lower Mosley Street through to Victoria.

Lower Mosley Street, another shot of the points simply because I like them.

P1150305 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The 2CC inbound track has been concreted now alongside the hotel.

P1150306 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150308 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The preparations for the slab at Oxford Street/Peter Street. The nice banksman here invited me to take these shots whilst the gates were open.

P1150315 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150316 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

There is a good cross section through the original slab and track on the right.

P1150314 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

I still think these piles mark the edge of the slab here.

P1150317 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150319 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150322 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Behind the fences here what I think is the base of the inbound island platform.

P1150327 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150328 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

At the north end the reinforcement for the 1CC inbound/2CC southbound diamond crossing base was being assembled.

P1150330 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150331 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Now at the corner of Princess Street and Cross Street.

Working on the southbound curve. The northbound curve is still buried.

P1150333 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150334 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The stone base for the southbound line is in place.

P1150336 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Cable ducting installation.

P1150337 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

At King Street.

P1150340 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Still Utility works ongoing here.

P1150341 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

More to follow from Market Street to Victoria....

Part 2, Market Street to Victoria. This is where it gets interesting.

As we know form other excellent posts we now have wires.

At Market Street the wires are anchored on temporary poles.

P1150346 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150347 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Then supported at the first headspan where they are brought over the double track.

P1150350 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

and attached to the cantilever poles as they approach the link bridge.

P1150354 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150355 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Thales were working on the points here as well.

P1150356 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150357 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Back to the OLE wiring.

Under the bridge.

P1150358 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Then through the crossover.

P1150361 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150365 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150368 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

A couple from above.

P1150380 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150385 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Through the stop in Exchange Square

P1150370 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150373 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The paving is coming on well and it looks as though they are tackling the interface between old and new now.

P1150374 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

At the Withy Grove end the paving activity was frenetic.

P1150403 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150404 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150406 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Back up in the air we have a feeder pole at the Victoria end of the stop. It looks to me as though there will be section insulators cut in at this pole as there are two cables to each wire.

P1150401 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The wires then continue across towards Todd Street.

P1150410 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

With a very neat arrangement of bridles and building fixings over the road junction. Note the road markings complete now.

P1150411 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150414 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150421 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

and we turn now into Victoria over Long Millgate. The large temporary pole outside the Co-op bank has now gone but the one in the six foot remains.

P1150426 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150429 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150431 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Section insulators outside Victoria.

P1150437 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150439 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The highway works here are advancing as well.

P1150433 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Corporation Street is significantly narrowed as the track crosses, no doubt to ease the entry of the 2CC line into the carriageway.

P1150447 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150448 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

The mass of knitting over Long Millgate.

P1150452 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

That's all for today.

I thought I would take a trip to investigate what form the new crossover installed at Sale has taken. I was surprised to find that it is a simple trailing crossover which seems to rule out the provision of a siding as there is no room on the outbound side for one.

Anyway a few shots.

From the end of the outbound platform.

P1150273 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150275 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

From Hope Road which runs parallel to the line.

P1150277 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150278 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

From the inbound platform.

P1150286 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150292 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

P1150295 by Steve Hyde, on Flickr

Given the service frequencies down here I would hope that this will be a motorised crossover, otherwise I can't see it being much use.

The A666 was clear of lane closures when I was there on Saturday evening, which means Fillie had passed by, so 70% of the distance had been done. If the current rate continues, breakthrough will be in the first half of November.

Latest photograph shows interchange progress
21 October 2015



A new photograph has been released, showing how Bolton’s brand new transport interchange is taking shape and offering passengers a glimpse of the future.

The image, taken overhead from a drone, shows how progress on the pre-cast concrete support structure, which will support the bus roadway and passenger concourse building, is taking shape.

Since August, sections of the structure have been lifted into place using a 130-tonne crane situated on site.

Prior to this, Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM) contractors installed 1002 concrete piles to support the interchange structure. The piles have a combined length of 14.7km, equivalent to the length of 1152 single decker buses, while the 4016 cubic metres of concrete used was enough to fill 33 double decker buses
