In Pictures: Work continues at Deansgate-Castlefield
One of two major construction projects currently underway on the outskirts of Manchester City Centre is at Deansgate-Castlefield where a new layout is to be introduced which will now include three platforms. This photo special shows recent progress at Deansgate-Castlefield.
Taken on 17th October 3054 leads a double unit into Deansgate-Castlefield. This service still uses the exisiting outbound platform. The photo is taken from the new inbound platform.
Looking out of the city this view shows the tracks splitting into two for the new two faced inbound platform.
At this stage the outer platform edge of the new island platform had still to be wired.
3074 arrives at Deansgate-Castlefield heading out of the city passing the crossover. (Photos x 4 by Ken Walker)
