Case Study Salford Crescent
Salford Crescent Station is a key interchange point for several rail routes converging on Manchester. It plays an integral part in providing transportation to the high volume of students in the surrounding area from the nearby University of Salford. The station upgrade works became a necessity to accommodate the large number of commuters struggling with access and congestion due to the configuration of the station.
