If cranes are a sign of a cities economic activity Manchester's economy must be booming. Always something new to see every time I visit.

For the North as a whole to befit though we must get on with improving E-W transport links, not dither like is happening with the planned new platforms for Manchester Piccadilly.

Manchester Goods Yard is just out of this world. X1 The Gateway is flying up, just like it should be.

I can't believe there's now gonna be a building taller than Owen Street. The pace that everything's been happening is surreal. I remember when I was in Manchester a year and a half ago. There was definitely a lot of construction, but not nearly anything close to what we're seeing now.

Now give me a cool new transport project Manchester.

Indeed, I think the next 'big thing' infrastructure-wise for Manchester (aside from HS2 and NPR) will be some form of underground network for the city. The inner areas are beginning to heavily densify, and high office rents in the city centre are making businesses look further out to find office bases, with clusters forming in Salford Quays and South Manchester in particular. Strong inner city neighbourhoods are also forming, and the City Zone's tram and overground railways are already clogged up - or will be in the next few years. There are lots of suburban areas which need plugging into a high quality mode of transport and TfGM have announced in their 2040 strategy that, for some areas, they envisage the rolling out of a Metro network with tunnels through the city centre as the solution for these areas.

I've heard rumours of a potential big announcement for Manchester's transport infrastructure coming up in the Chancellor's Autumn Statement, I guess we'll have to wait and see what that is but apparently the money is "in the billions, rather than the hundreds of millions". So make of that what you will...

Improvements to the transport network are now coming in thick and fast and the opening of 2CC last week has given the Metrolink network tonnes more operational flexibility, higher frequencies on some lines and Airport trams now run between the City centre and South/Manchester and the Airport 24/7, which a short break between midnight and 3am. Next up is the Ordsall Chord, which will see another re-jig of trains in the region with more trains being diverted into Victoria which will open up 3 train paths an hour into Piccadilly, which will be used to strengthen suburban services from the south. The expansion of Salford Central station puts it at the centre of the North's rail network, and the knock-on effect that this will have on the surrounding area has been, in my opinion, severely understated and will probably be realised in 5 years time when the area will bloom even more than it currently is doing.

After that, in 2018, the first of the new trains begin to arrive. Transpennine Express have ordered an entire new fleet to run services out of Manchester connecting it to the North. They've ordered these bi-mode trainswhich will be built in Durham and run West Coast Mainline routes out of Manchester to Scotland, and new trains have also been ordered to run the routes between Manchester and Liverpool, Newcastle and Middlesborough.

Meanwhile, Arriva Trains North are also getting these trains which will run southern suburban services out of Piccadilly, and these trains which will operate the Northern Connect network, which is also focused on Manchester and starts operation in 2019.

With HS2 Phase 1 now starting construction and Phase 2 (to Manchester) heading through Parliament this year; plus talks of new Transpennine rail tunnels to better link us to Leeds and open up further capacity on those lines, there's light at the end of the tunnel but still a long long way to go and more effort/money needed from Westminster if they're really serious about keeping the North and Scotland in the Union.

Really good article VDB. A route that would benefit from an underground metro line. Would be the Oxford Road corridor into student land.

Agreed.

Think TfGM are exploring the option of a tunnel to form a new North West-South East Metro network to run between Salford and Piccadilly station underneath the city centre at first. This plugs into their desire to improve the Wigan via Atherton line in West Manchester; and the Rose Hill/Glossop lines in South/East Manchester. They can then use this as a "core" network similar to how the Altrincham and Bury line acted as the core network to the network we have today which is effectively formed of branches off from that core network.

Once that tunnel and network is in place I imagine it becomes much easier to justify more tunnels and more lines: similar to how it's now much easier to justify further expansions to Metrolink because it's already a sizeable network. This means we'd potentially be able to plug in a Oxford Road/University tunnel down to Fallowfield and beyond in time.

Manchester Council also have plans to develop the rest of the Irk Valley. Could this kickstart the redundant Angelgate site?

There's already big plans down here, including "North View" proposed a few weeks ago. 415 apartments.






Certainly feels like this area is finally starting to come to life

24 (TWENTY FOUR!!) 100m+ towers confirmed to go into planning, already in planning or under construction in Manchester at present. x2 of them being over 200m.

That's without projects that are being planned on the down low including Mayfield, Renaissance scheme and Oxford Corridor project which should all have 100m+ towers.

Manchester took 2nd place for most taken office space outside London last year. 2nd most visited city behind the London in 2016. Manchester is expected to have the highest house price growth in the country from now until 2021 ahead of the Capital and outskirts. With a upcoming 1 billion pound airport expansion, continuous metro link expansion and the still have the best chips and gravy...

England's "3rd City" isn't doing too bad.

I agree with this. This route is often touted with pride that it is the busiest bus route in the world... maybe so... but then that's because everywhere else already replaced their buses with an underground metro line

Definitely the 2nd city in my books. Population isn't everything and when they are this close it comes down to other factors. While I think Birmingham is great, it just doesn't seem to tick as many boxes as Manchester does for the 2nd city status.

I completely agree with you but it's a very sensitive issue to some midland people. It usually tents to cause arguments so it's not worth it

You may enjoy these picture's of Manchester city centre taken from the top of the Midland Hotel.

The office tower under construction is No1 Spinningfields.

The view from the roof of the Midland Hotel.

The Hotel is considering opening the roof again for special events, occasions, and for the general public. But because it's grade 2 listed, nothing can be changed, railings etc, and there are H&S concerns. ( bloody H&S)
