Ordsall Chord
Rail Line | City

Length: 1km | Developer: Network Rail | Cost: £85m

Current Status: Approved

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1345619&page=4

Website: http://www.networkrail.co.uk/north/Ordsall-Chord.aspx







A strategic link in Manchester & the North of England's rail network was approved today by the Secretary of State for Transport.

The Chord, a short 1km measure of track, will allow trains to run between Victoria and Piccadilly, Manchester's two biggest stations. However it will also allow trains from north of the city to run direct not only to every station in the city centre - but also to the Airport: meaning wealth is spread across the north of the region.

It also relieves a major bottleneck in the North of England's transport network, centred on Manchester.

The 21 storey element has now topped out. It already looks huge in what is currently a derelict and low-rise part of the city. Now we're waiting for the 31-storey element to take off.

Manchester and Salford grow major free wifi network, bringing superfast surfing to millions...

Quote:
Quote:
Greater Manchester’s ambition to become a top 20 worldwide digital city region has taken a major step forward with the rollout from today of free, superfast wifi to Metrolink trams, more than 200 public buildings and greatly improved on-street coverage.
The innovative £7.25m scheme is being run by Manchester City Council, Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) – with funding from Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), part of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Thanks to the scheme, Manchester and Salford are providing superfast free wifi in public buildings right across the cities, while free wifi will also be available on Metrolink trams.

Free superfast wifi is to be made available in more than 120 prominent Manchester City Council buildings including all libraries, the Town Hall as well as other civic buildings from community centres, sports centres and park buildings to galleries and museums.

In Salford, unlimited free wifi will be extended to 91 buildings under the banner of _FreebeeSalford, including libraries, leisure centres, The Lowry and Salford Museum and Art Gallery – giving instant access for residents and visitors.

Free wifi has already been switched on at Central Library and at the Town Hall Extension, with a further 119 sites set to be up and running by the end of March. The wifi is under the name _BusyBeeMcr and users can surf with no time limit throughout the week, when these venues are open. Capital funding for the _BusybeeMcr network has been provided by BDUK.

Quote:
Ian Stewart, City Mayor of Salford, said: “As home to MediaCityUK, Europe’s biggest purpose built community of digital businesses, this is another step in making Salford a truly digital city within a vibrant city region. So much more is being done online, from shopping to applying for benefits, that we want to include as many residents and visitors as possible.”

Speaker of the US House of Representatives declares Northern Powerhouse 'vital' to America
MEN: http://www.manchestereveningnews.co....rthern-8937500

Quote:
Republican John Boehner, dubbed one of the most powerful men in the world, was in the North West to visit the UK base of Waters Corporation.

A politician dubbed one of the most powerful men in the world visited the region and declared that the Northern Powerhouse centred on Greater Manchester was vital to the United States.

Chancellor George Osborne played host to Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner - the top Republican in the States - on a trip to Wilmslow.

Mr Boehner compared Greater Manchester to ‘parts of New England’ and Boston, also undergoing significant change.

He added: “Those areas that are going through the same type of thing; older, industrial towns starting a new life.”

Mr Boehner, dubbed by Osborne as ‘one of the most powerful men in the world’, said economic prosperity in Greater Manchester and across the north is in the US’ interests.

Quoting former President John F. Kennedy, he said: “A rising tide lifts all boats. The chancellor told me about the Northern Powerhouse, so I decided to come and take a look for myself. It’s impressive. We have our areas of the United States that don’t do as well as others.

“But when you focus energy into those slower growths areas, and devote the kind of resources the government is here, you can grow a new economy for a long period of time.

“When you add the transportation systems, the education systems and the health systems to it, you can see a significant amount of economic growth coming here.”

Mr Osborne said he wanted to use the UK’s ‘unrivalled’ trade links with the US to help develop a Northern Powerhouse and highlighted Greater Manchester’s importance in economic growth.

Mr Osborne and Mr Boehner’s 16-strong delegation visited the UK base for US company, Waters Corporation, before a working lunch in nearby Knutsford.

The Tatton MP said the north west already accounted for £3bn of the UK’s annual £90bn exports to the US, but wanted that figure to grow.

Mr Osborne has championed Greater Manchester in his bid to create a Northern Powerhouse - and chose to bring the US party north, rather than to London, to show them his plan for our region.

In December’s Autumn Statement, the region was handed £78m towards a new theatre, £235m for a new science institute and a devolution deal worth £1bn; with greater control over housing, transport and skills. The region is also set for a directly elected mayor. And earlier this year, town hall bosses were told they will soon control the region’s entire £6bn NHS budget - a national first.

Mr Osborne said he feared a Labour government would not support Greater Manchester’s growth and further devolution, highlighting recent in-fighting surrounding the Manchester leg of HS2.

He added: “Manchester has led the way. I’ve been working with civic leaders in Greater Manchester to deliver this, but I fear it would not get the same support and impetus with a Labour government.”

Missguided to build new Manchester head office and warehouse

24 March 2015

By Jill Geoghegan

Young fashion etailer Missguided is to open a new head office and fulfilment centre in Manchester as it teams up with logistics partner Norbert Dentressangle.

The seven-year deal will see the transport and logistics company manage Missguided’s international orders as the business continues to expand globally, building on its current websites serving the UK, US, France and Australia.

Missguided will move to a new 45,000 sq ft office in Salford Quays later this year to allow for an increase in staff numbers, although it declined to say how many people it employs. The head office is currently located at Coronet Way in Manchester.

A new fulfilment facility, totalling one million sq ft, will be constructed near Salford Quays and will be five times the size of the current Missguided warehouse and head office. Work on the building will start in June this year and is expected to finish in April 2016.

The move will result in a split between the warehouse and office for the first time; however, staff will continue to work across both locations to maintain a “fully integrated operation”.

Norbert Dentressangle will take over responsibility for the warehouse, including the receipt of goods from Missguided’s suppliers, order picking, marshalling, packing, despatch and returns management.

Nitin Passi, managing director of Missguided, said: “The past few years have seen significant new resource join the team, and so it comes as no surprise that we have outgrown our current premises. We are glad to be staying close to our present location.”

Manchester among best places to find work as average advertised salary up by 8pc...

Quote:
Research has found there were almost a million vacancies advertised last month, with Manchester Cambridge among the best places to find work


Advertised salaries have jumped by 8 per cent in the past year to an average of more than £34,500, driven by big rises for teachers and healthcare workers including nurses, according to a new report.

Jobs site Adzuna said there were almost a million vacancies last month, a post-recession high, and 190,000 more than a year ago.

Teaching jobs are being advertised at more than £26,500, up by 26 per cent over the past year, while healthcare and nursing positions are being offered at salaries of almost £38,000, said Adzuna.

Quote:
Cambridge and Manchester are among the best places to find work, with more jobs than candidates,
while Sunderland, Hull and Bradford are among the worst - between four and five jobseekers per vacancy - research found.

Andrew Hunter, of Adzuna, said: "For the first time in a long while, British workers are having their cake and eating it too. The jobs market has fought through some very tough economic times and emerged stronger for it. Job competition is down, CPI inflation has fallen, and advertised wages are rising.

"UK jobseekers have an enormous range of options, and, once they secure employment, their potential pay packets are far higher than last year, with February's rate of vacancy growth hitting post-recession peaks. Low inflation is pushing pay packets even further.

"It's a perfect storm for UK workers. It's entirely possible that pre-election jitters might have had a negative impact on the jobs market, but all the key indicators are heading in the right direction."

The southern entrance to deansgate is already the most visually arresting avenue into the city, right under that bridge and past beetham. with that extra cluster on the right, it should be even more amazing.
