Blackpool tramway extension

 

Artist impression of tram on Talbot RoadFollowing on from the recent successful upgrade of the Blackpool to Fleetwood Tramway, Blackpool Council is now proposing to extend the existing tramway from North Pier to Blackpool North railway station.

The proposals will re-establish the link to North Station, which ceased operation in 1936 and will provide direct services from North Station to the north and south of the town. Blackpool Council has applied to the Secretary of State for powers under the Transport and Works  Act to construct and operate the proposed extension.

A brochure outlining the proposals and the scheme's objectives is available.
