Canopy gains a roof!

On Thursday 19th March another milestone in the project was reached in the erection of the platform 2 canopy.

Two sections of the upper frame work have now been lifted into place by the railway’s crane giving a glimpse of how the canopy will look once completed. The next two sections will now be moved to Bolton Street where they can erected and lifted into position in the next couple of weeks which will be followed shortly after by the fifth and final section.

The next phase of the project will be the ordering of the canopy glazing bars and panels in order to meet the deadline completion date of July 2015, in time for our Raise the Roof event.

The canopy is moving at pace now and we extremely grateful for all that have supported the project so far.
