Slight burst on Brunswick street last night. There is water still gushing into it and it will probably be down to one lane for a week. Interesting to see the old tram lines.

Almost ready

This is East Didsbury tram stop. Was there the other day and thought I'd have a peek. Not sure when it's due to open. If its anything like the Rochdale or Droylsden extensions it will probably be 2020. Just noticed the Lovely sky in this picture.

Poorly bus

This city shuttle hybrid wasn't too well today at Piccadilly station. Had to be Towed back to queens road. Didn't ask what the problem was but thought I'd take the picture instead. Don't see many of them on tow so they must be pretty reliable.

Just at Mumps waiting for the tram. Was a bit surprised to see trams operating through to Rochdale, or so the board would have you think. They are still terminating at Mumps but I think someone has got a bit giddy. I have been using the bike lockers here for about 5 weeks now. Great idea! An quicker to get home from the tram stop than either the bus or by car as I can cut down through the park and be off the tram and in the front door in 8 minutes.

Good news and bad news

Today's idiot of the day was this BMW parked in Albert square making my bus stop at an angle (pet hate) on a good note Stagecoach Manchester have won large bus operator of the year. I'm always the first to pat us on the back as you will know reading this so today is no exception.

At that is?

Bit of a poor excuse for a Santa I think. This is the stage for the lights switch on tomorrow. More disruption for a Friday afternoon how thoughtful of the council.

Great parking

Fine example of how not to collect the passengers.


Getting a bit bored if cars just blocking the stops in Albert square. Think I might. Just make my blog a hate site for inconsiderate motorists.
