CATS delivery site

This is part of the former Oldham Batteries site which has been derelict for more than 10 years.

According to the council website "Tameside Council has been successful in securing £1.67 million from the Greater Manchester Growth Deal Round 2, which will deliver a new relief road linking the A6017 Ashton Road at the M67 Junction 1 slip road to the A57 Hyde Road in Denton. The proposal seeks to relieve congestion to reduce traffic delays, improve air quality and road safety for the travelling public and the population of Denton. Alongside these improvements the road will also facilitate the comprehensive redevelopment of the former Oldham Batteries Site.

According to the sign on the side of Edward Street:

"This site has been selected for the delivery of the
Greater Manchester NHS Clinical
Assessment & Treatment Service
Our mobile units will visit this location
at regularly scheduled times."

Information on the service can be found on the Greater Manchester CATS website.

  1. A clinical looking sign, too!
    I hope people are pleased to know the site will no longer be sitting derelict.

  2. Well, at least something gets done with it.

  3. Pretty cloud capture! Happy skywatching, enjoy your weekend!

  4. Quite sky and cloud shot ~

    Happy Weekend to you ~ ^_^

  5. A big place to not be utilized for something worthwhile.

  6. Looks like some good fencing. For some reason reading the sign (CATS) I picture a bunch of cats behind that fence. I know that's not what they meant but still wouldn't that be something.

  7. I love the sky in that first shot!
