Busway construction starts in Leigh

Construction work has recently begun on another guided busway project - this one in Leigh, between Manchester and Wigan. The guided section will be just 4.5 miles, and forms part of a much larger "bus priority" scheme in the Manchester area.

As with most of the Cambridge and Luton busways, the guided section is on an old railway alignment; this one sits on the trackbed between East Bond Street in Leigh and Newearth Road in Ellenbrook.

More information about the project can be found here. And there's the inevitable press release.

  1. Looking at the image gallery pictures, looks like the cycle track will be gravel surface.
