Support The Rochdale Oldham Manchester rail lines group

Rochdale subway opening event 10 July 2015

The underpass from Miall Street to the front of Rochdale station making an easy journey on foot from the dedicated Metrolink and Rail Car Park was opened in a low key event on Friday 10 July.


An excellent job has been done of the cleaning and refurbishing whilst preserving many of the original features with panels showing views of the station down the years.


STORM was well represented at the opening along with Greater manchester transport Campaign's Peter Garvey.


Centre (group photo) are Councillors Andrew Fender ( chair  of TfGM) and Richard Farnell ( leader of Rochdale Council). Also seen are the chief executive of Rochdale Council and people from Network rail and TfGM.
