Richard the chilled out conductor!
Fascinating track layout in the fourth view. Presumably there will be tram-controlled traffic lights to keep road vehicles from blocking the junction - at least, I hope so!
Many thanks for this, good photos.I biked down Manchester road yesterday, the road is certainly not bike friendly! I don't think you can ever mix the two forms of transport which is a shame. The difficult road surface plus the constant worry about a tram appearing behind you didnt lead to a pleasant ride.I hope you dont mind me adding one of your pics (with a link to this blog of course), to my blog at http://quickbeer.blogspot.com/2011/08/holme-moss-and-snake-pass.htmlOnce again, many thanks.
