THE ALTRINCHAM LINE DEMONSTRATION PROJECT

The Altrincham Line is a suburban railway running out of Manchester. A proposal to demonstrate the effect of upgrading the service is outlined. The improvements would consist of increasing the frequency and capacity of trains, creating three major interchanges along the route, and reshaping the bus route system so that buses act as feeders to the railway. Methods of estimating the number of people using bus and car to reach the stations are discussed, and the article concludes with a summary of the costs and benefits of the scheme. /Author/
