Blackpool transport link to receive multi-million pound upgrade

Blackpool transport link to receive multi-million pound upgrade
A major transport link in the north-west of England is due to receive £100 million of improvements, the UK government has said.

Transport minister Sadiq Khan announced that the Blackpool to Fleetwood Tramway will benefit from new trams, track replacement work, new stops and a depot for its trams.

Once the improvements are initiated, passengers travelling on the tramway can expect to experience faster journey times, while accessibility will be improved for people who may have otherwise chosen not to take the low-carbon transport mode.

"This scheme will deliver significant benefits for the local community, and I am delighted that one of my first tasks as transport minister is to give it the go ahead," Mr Khan said.

"Trams have been running in Blackpool for over 100 years - I hope this funding will mean the historic, world-famous tramway can continue to run well into the future."

The Blackpool Council-owned tramway, which has been running since 1885, stretches from the Fylde coast into Lancashire. It serves the towns of Cleveleys and Fleetwood, and is one of the oldest tramways in the world.
