ABC Wednesday: D is for
Disruption in Droylsden
Back in February I brought you Disruption on Droylsden Road due the laying of the new Metrolink tramline from Manchester to Ashton under Lyne.
These pictures were taken one day in June. The 216 bus was stuck at the traffic lights. I'd just alighted from the bus a moment before.
This was the view behind me showing the state of the tramlines being laid along the road. After alighting the bus I had time to take a few photographs and re-board the same bus before it was able to set off again.
This last shot was taken from onboard the bus and shows work ongoing in the town centre. If newspaper reports are to be believed it would seem no-one in Droylsden wants the Metrolink whose construction has disrupted the town to the extent that business have closed. They are very dubious of the so-called benefits which they feel will accrue mainly to folk passing through rather than stopping in Droylsden.
