"RESOURCE Solutions"...

Quote:
is to create 200 new jobs in Manchester with the opening of its newest global service centre in October.

It has taken 10,000 sq ft at Delphian House on New Bailey Street, to complement its existing global service centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Resource Solutions operates from a network of 24 countries globally, managing a recruitment budget of £1.7bn on behalf of clients and hiring more than 20,000 employees for them each year. The company is part of the Robert Walters Group, which has a base in Spiningfields.

The company said it had chosen Manchester for it's global service centre because it had been "impressed" by the financial and professional service firms established in the city and also by the large numbers of students who are in full time education.

Janine Chidlow, MD EMEA at Resource Solutions, said:“We purposefully selected Manchester as we are confident we will find the skilled and dedicated recruitment professionals we need to make the GSC a success and maintain our focus on quality."

She added: “As a group, we have an established footprint in Manchester, and we truly believe this is a city where we can successfully continue to grow our business.”

The company said the new centre would support its focus on global growth and evolving the services offered to clients.

“These are extraordinarily exciting times for Resource Solutions, as the rapid expansion of our business continues. Our success is driven by two key factors - our people, and the exemplary service we deliver to clients. The new GSC will support us in further strengthening both of these areas," said Chidlo

Manchester Victoria refurbishment completes
PNW: http://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/news....Wka5ou43.dpuf

6 Oct 2015, 11:42

Quote:
Network Rail has formally reopened Manchester’s Victoria Station today, with the £44m revamp delivering four tram platforms, three new tracks and a 100,000 sq ft glass roof.

BDP was the architect and heritage consultant for the three-year project, while Morgan Sindall was the main contractor.

The central feature is a new concourse which is enclosed with an energy-saving roof which has changed the appearance of the station from the north of the city. BDP’s roof replaces a series of train-shed roofs.

See below for images of the completed station

The design includes a series of mezzanine floors holding retail and station facilities and improving passenger connections.

The station complex covers a variety of functions, including the main entrance to the Manchester Arena and a multi-storey car park. The multi-modal transport interchange required by Network Rail integrates these with heavy and light rail, regional and shuttle buses, taxis, private cars and bicycles.

Upgraded Metrolink facilities at the station are part of enabling works for the second city crossing route, now under construction.

Victoria is one of the city’s oldest rail terminals and a historic building in its own right, dating from 1844, with a number of listed buildings and features.

The original grade two-listed Edwardian frontage building has been restored, alongside the refurbishment of the original ticket hall dating from 1909.

Original features such as the original Lancashire and Yorkshire railway tiled wall map, the First World war memorial, the original glass dome, Soldiers’ Gate, the historic station mosaics, and the Art Nouveau external glass and iron canopy, have all been restored and re-installed.

The Victoria transformation is part of a £1bn investment by Network Rail to provide a foundation for future transport developments, improving links between cities in the north.

The programme of work which incorporates the Northern Hub and North West electrification will unlock new routes, improve connections and provide journey-times across the north of England from coast to coast.

Metrolink Extension: Trafford Park Line
Metro Line | Trafford

Miles: 3.4 | Number of stations: 6 | Developer: TfGM

Current Status: Approved

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...6944&page=2041






A little bit of info on Metrolink's new extension to Trafford Park and the Trafford Centre leisure complex.

Video flythrough here:





Taken from: http://www.tfgm.com/Corporate/Consul...Park-Line.aspx

Quote:
TfGM submitted a Transport and Works Act Order (TWAO) application to the Department for Transport on 11th November 2014. TfGM will continue to develop the scheme whilst following the statutory process to obtain a TWAO.
Quote:
The proposed new line is approximately 5.5km long and will include six new stops to serve businesses, retail and amenities along the route. It will leave the existing Metrolink network at Pomona, pass under the Trafford Road Bridge and follow Trafford Wharf Road, Warren Bruce Road, Village Way, Park Way and Barton Dock Road, terminating outside the intu Trafford Centre.
Quote:
The alignment of the route is subject to further design development as the scheme progresses.

The previously approved route has been amended to accommodate changes which have occurred in the area over the last 20 years, including the developments at Salford Quays. The proposed route takes a central course through Trafford Park, which is convenient to those wishing to access northern and southern parts of the Park. This also means faster journey times between the proposed Trafford Centre stop and Manchester city centre, and the wider Metrolink network.

So much infrastructure work. Ominous, in a good way. Usually you want this kind of stuff in place before you embark on other grand projects.

Is there a start date for the Trafford line and how long will it take to get built roughly?
