Trans-Pennine Road Tunnel | The Pennine Hills
Motorway & tunnel | Between Manchester and Sheffield

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1791674

  • Report (121 pages): Click

  • Cost: "in excess of £1bn for all options"

  • Build time: 10 years

  • Government road strategy period: 2020-2025

The government has, today, published its latest options on a new Trans-Pennine motorway, linking Manchester and Sheffield - which are apparently Europe's two largest cities not yet linked by a motorway.

They have shortlisted 5 options (down from a total of 36).

Map of the options. All routes will connect the Orbital M60 motorway (which loops around Manchester) with the M1






The problem with connecting Manchester and Sheffield in the past has been the Peak District National Park, which lies between the two cities. A motorway through here would never allowed, and it's clear to see why:










All options involve a tunnel so as not to damage the beauty of this area, and the tunnel itself is likely to be one of Europe's longest as a result of this.

A motorway between Manchester and Sheffield also links vast swathes of the Eastern United Kingdom (Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk, Essex) with Manchester - and provides an alternate, potentially faster than the current M6, route to London.

The Independent: The most and least liveable cities of 2016 revealed

Sky News: Manchester A Better Place To Live Than London, Rankings Say

Insider Media: Manchester Climbs Liveability Rankings

Daily Mail: Manchester placed ahead of London in annual global liveability rankings

  • Manchester voted world's 43rd most liveable city.

  • It topped all British cities in the list.

  • Manchester scored 88.8 in the list.

  • One in five of worldwide city's ratings have declined due to terrorism, shootings and geopolitical tension.

  • Worries that Brexit would affect next year's rankings in London and Manchester have been quelled by Mr Copestake - the Liveability Index's editor, who stated "London and Manchester both have a significant size and status that makes them very resilient to potential fallout."

  • Manchester has risen up the list since last year due to improvements in transport and housing.

Manchester to hold Olympics homecoming parade | News

The BBC: Manchester and London to host Olympic celebrations

Manchester Evening News: The national Olympic 'welcome home' parade will be held in Manchester

Daily Mail: Manchester to stage homecoming parade for Olympic stars





Quote:
The success of Britain's Olympic and Paralympic stars is to be celebrated with events in Manchester and London, Theresa May has announced.

There will be a parade through the streets of Manchester and another event in the capital in October.

The prime minister said: "It will be a celebration fit for heroes - and rightly so, because that is exactly what they are."

Manchester City Council said the area "couldn't be more thrilled".
Deputy leader Sue Murphy said: "We will be sure to show our athletes the meaning of celebration.

"The city has been a medal factory, pumping out golds as the home of British cycling and British Taekwondo.

"It's fantastic to see the product of years of hard work and training at the centres of excellence in east Manchester."

The decision to stage the parade in the north of England follows calls for it to be held outside the capital to reflect the contribution made by athletes from across the UK.

"Our athletes have performed heroics in Rio and their exploits have gripped the entire nation," he said.

"My team will continue to work with the government and sports chiefs to help develop plans for wonderful celebrations."

The success of Scotland's Olympians and Paralympians will also be celebrated with a special homecoming event at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh on 28 September.


The northern powerhouse


Jason Kenny and fellow cyclist and fiancee Laura Trott live together near the Manchester Velodrome.


Manchester is certainly basking in a golden glow from Rio with a host of the medal winners living and training in the area.

The Manchester velodrome training centre for Team GB's track cycling athletes, who have brought home 11 Olympic medals,
is based in the city with many of the team living nearby - including Sir Bradley Wiggins.

Jason Kenny, now one of Britain's most decorated Olympians, hails from Bolton in Greater Manchester while team pursuit gold-medallist Steve Burke comes from nearby Colne in Lancashire.

Taekwondo star Jade Jones, originally from Flint in north Wales, now lives and trains in Manchester.

Rower Matt Langridge, who won gold in Rio with the men's eight, was born in Crewe and grew up in nearby Northwich, Cheshire.

A number of athletes also bringing home medals live over the border in Yorkshire. The Brownlee brothers, diver Jack Laugher and cyclist Ed Clancy are all proud Yorkshiremen.

Mrs May said: "For the past fortnight, the people of the United Kingdom have been filled with pride as we've watched our Olympians take victory in so many sports with power, grace and control.

"In every discipline and at every stage, Team GB have shown the world what we're made of: determination, dignity and true sportsmanship.

"They haven't just made history; by showing just how far talent and hard work can take you, they have inspired the next generation.

"They have also shown the importance of supporting elite sport and that is something this government remains wholly committed to."

Smaller parades are expected to be held for individual athletes in their home towns.

The town council in Stone, Staffordshire, has said it will hold a parade for K1 slalom gold medallist Joe Clarke, 23, who will be hoisted aloft in his kayak on 29 August.

ITV is also planning to switch off all seven of its channels for an hour on 27 August to encourage people to take part in sport as part of the I Am Team GB campaign.

Counting people born and based, if Manchester was a country on its own during this Olympics it would be third/fourth on the global medal table (17 medals).

Quite astounding for one city.

Just amazing. Partly due to the Commonwealth Games in 2002 as well.

Looks like they're still digging down on this site, as you can see the piling has been done around the edges. Think we'll start seeing a core rising in about two months.

Two Greengate | Greengate
Apartments | Salford

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post121223770

  • Address: 2 Greengate, Greengate, Salford M3

  • Architect: OMI

  • Floors: 15-31

  • Number of apartments: 497

  • Height: Tallest 88m

  • Developer: Renaker

Current status: Under Construction, nearing completion

Nearest transport: Victoria





This building splits opinion on the Manc forums, now that it's nearing completion we get more of an idea of how it's going to look.

I think it's just a bit too messy - there's way too much going on. If it had all been one cladding system (e.g. brick) it would've look okay. It actually looks as though they've tried to merge about 5 different buildings into one.

Update by AC1 yesterday

Several of Manchester's Metrolink trams have been painted in rainbow colours, to celebrate Manchester Pride, which happens this weekend. It is the longest-running event of its kind in the country, and one of the oldest Gay Pride events in the world.

Here's hoping they choose something along Corridor B because depending on where they actually start and end the tunnel it will very likely connect Penistone with Broadbottom and I'm a ten year old child and that's hilarious.
