Train passengers advised to check before they travel ahead of work on the Ordsall Chord

Published on : Thursday, March 9, 2017

2A flagship scheme in the Great North Rail Project, part of Britain’s Railway Upgrade Plan, Ordsall Chord is a new section of track linking Manchester’s three main railway stations – Piccadilly, Oxford Road and Victoria.

 

The chord will also create new direct links to Manchester Airport from cities such as Bradford and will reduce congestion at Manchester Piccadilly meaning more trains will be free to stop there.

 

To finish the scheme Network Rail needs to replace sections of Chapel Street bridge in Salford, to strengthen New Bailey Street bridge and to remodel tracks through Salford Central. It also needs to fit new signalling and overhead line equipment.

 

Mike Heywood, project director for Network Rail, said: “We’d ask people to bear with the short-term pain of service changes knowing that from December this scheme will be finished and bring major benefits to train customers across the north.”
