A study is made of the Bury interchange, a terminal complex providing an all-weather passenger interchange between the British Rail electric railway service to Manchester and local bus services. Although the railway line to Bury was threatened with closure at one time, the area has since developed and now rail and bus services have been combined to give an overall 11% increase in journeys made. The interchange has an island platform long enough for six-car trains and also features a heated passenger waiting room. Stairs and an escalator link the platform to the bus area where there is room for nineteen buses as well as parking space. The success of the interchange terminal has proved that by providing ease of interchange between the two transport modes additional passengers will be attracted away from private transport.
