Manchester promised funding for UK’s first tram-train network
Transport secretary announces ‘several hundred millions of pounds’ to ease overcrowding in Greater Manchester
Greater Manchester is to receive hundreds of millions of pounds to develop the UK’s first tram-train network, the transport secretary, Chris Grayling, has promised.
The region already has the largest tram network in the country, Metrolink, but Grayling wants to buy a fleet of trams that can also run on the railways, extending the service out to Wigan, Stockport and Bolton.
