PICC-VIC: ON, OFF, NOW ON AGAIN--OR IS IT?
The 19th century bequeathed the Greater Manchester area the biggest railway network outside London. Unfortunately the network was--and still is--divided. The former Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company built most of the northern network based on Victoria Station. The London and North Western Company built most of the southern network. The two halves are still run separately. The Picc-Vic project is quite simply planned to bridge that gap. And until last August the scheme was moving forward steadily on the basis of detailed costing and survey work following an agreed transportation strategy for the Greater Manchester area.
