Like VDB said, the government wouldn't fund a project like this outside of London and Manchester.

Trams will surely reach full capacity eventually with growing populations, more people working in our city centres and tourism increasing.
A brand new underground network doesn't seem likely when Metrolink is already so extensive and successful. That said, even with Second City Crossing it's going to be getting really congested.

I can imagine the next step will be to start overhauling the heavy rail network and bringing it under the Metrolink 'brand' as they've done with Overground in London.

Another couple of lines through the city centre linking up Spinningfields and Salford will help relieve capacity and the line from East Dids will be extended to Stockport, but that might be about it in terms of laying new track. Apart from the Wythenshawe loop.

Is there an underground project for Manchester (or even Birmingham) like the tube or even the pre-metro system in Bruxelles ?

Thank you for your updates btw !
Manchester city centre is not as small as some people think, there's a lot more to it besides Market Street and Deansgate.

As I have said on several occasions Manchester is undergoing a massive resurgence...we together with London are experiencing the largest inward investment seen possibly for decades...and it continues, as we have seen from forward plans much more still to come.

Adelphi Wharf first phase sold out
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....lGKmr1MC.dpuf

25 Aug 2015, 11:19


Quote:
The 200-apartment first phase of Adephi Wharf, the £75m buy-to-let residential scheme being delivered by Knight Knox International and Fortis Developments in Salford, has sold out.

The 450,000 sq ft development on the bank of the River Irwell was granted planning permission in May. The scheme will be let and managed by Fortis Lettings & Management. Amenities include bicycle storage, an on-site gym, concierge reception area, landscaped gardens and underground parking.

Adelphi Wharf will be completed over three phases. There are 206 apartments and townhouses included in the first phase, which is due to be completed in the second quarter of 2017. The development totals 593 units.

Knight Knox launched the scheme to potential investors in January. Prices for an apartment start at £94,995.

Kieran Moore, director of Fortis, said: “Fortis Developments has worked closely with Salford City Council and Urban Vision to ensure that the design and visual impact of Adelphi Wharf complements the area, whilst incorporating modern architecture along the city’s water front.

“A riverside walkway will be created to offer access to the waterfront, allowing residents to enjoy Salford’s surroundings with ease. Adelphi Wharf is an exciting project, so it’s no surprise that the first phase has proven so popular.”

Corn Exchange Signs...

Quote:
Italian chef and TV personality Gino D’Acampo has announced plans for a 250-cover restaurant within the refurbished Corn Exchange in Manchester, the first of two UK locations under the new My Restaurant brand.

Alongside the main restaurant space, the Corn Exchange venue will offer a sit-at cicchetti and kitchen bar, and two large outside areas, one of which leads onto Exchange Square, facing Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. The site is due to open in November.

The second My Restaurant will be within Euston train station in London.

For the launch of My Restaurant, D’Acampo has teamed up with Steven Walker, Individual Restaurants founder and owner of Piccolino and Restaurant Bar & Grill.

Aviva Investors and redevelopment manager Queensberry Real Estate are currently executing a phased opening of the £30m Corn Exchange, delivering a premium casual dining cluster centred around an internal atrium.

Restaurant occupiers due to open in the next couple of months include Wahaca, Mowgli, Byron, Salvi’s and Vapiano.

D’Acampo said: “I have been approached many times over the years to open restaurants, but it was Steven’s passion for Italian cucina, his eye for detail and his insistence that he would only partner me if I were truly involved, that attracted me finally to take the plunge.”

“I’m excited to be creating the new menus for the restaurant and I’m going to be including lots of favourites from my books and TV programmes.

New Metrolink Map

The Metrolink network has now started using letters to represent routes and lines - A-G - as of today.

The letters will be presented on the front of trams and in the on-board announcements at some point in the future. Metrolink state the new map is accessible for those with colourblindness.

I wish there was a more direct north/south line. Buses are fine up and down Oxford Rd but it's sparse everywhere else and you can go f yourself if you think I'm walking to east dids.

Seems to be a lot of constructions starting up in Manchester. Suprised that the number of cranes are still well below pre 2006 level.

I thiink that we are coming out of the biggest economic depression since the 1930`s Manchester is doing well to recover at such speed, yes crane numbers are still below a few years ago, but re-start of projects is starting at a pace now.
