Following a break, Making Manchester is scheduled to resume in the summer. The next programme – Moving Manchester: Planes, trams and smart motorways – will look at the ongoing development of Manchester Airport and the Airport City project; the continuing expansion of Metrolink, which now serves seven of Greater Manchester’s ten boroughs; and the Manchester Smart Motorways project.
In the meantime the Institution of Civil Engineers has today published this new video – screened for the first time last night at the ICE North West Annual Awards dinner in Carlisle – which has a quick look at some of the projects featured in the Making Manchester series, as well as others from around North West England.
The video’s called Civil engineering in North West England: Some of the jewels in the crown. Those jewels include Manchester Victoria Station’s £44m redevelopment, which at last night’s ICE Awards swept away the coveted Large Project Award.
The video also has a brief look at the Mersey Gateway Bridge, mentioned in The seaport 40 miles from the sea, and the Metrolink and Manchester Smart Motorways projects which will feature in the next Making Manchester programme.
Enjoy the video, and watch this space for the date of Making Manchester‘s return.
