Sale Cycle Hub

Client: Transport for Greater Manchester

Project Value: £437k

Completion Date:  October 2018

Jamieson secured the works to carry out the refurbishment of a disused waiting room at Sale Metrolink Station. The station was constructed in 1849 but closed in 1991.

When the station was reopened as a Metrolink station in 1992 the waiting room was not reopened. Over the preceding years the waiting room was stripped out due to the structural instability and Jamieson’s were tasked with converting the redundant building into a new cycling facility.

One of the stakeholders for this project was the local historical society who were concerned the cycle hub would look too modern in the Victoria building. The works were designed to give the building a modern feel while still retaining some of the heritage features such as the stone cills, mullions and head to the platform side as well as the hardwood windows all-round the building.

These works were completed in a live Metrolink Tram stop with a large footfall of commuter travelling between Sale and Manchester city centre as well as other areas on the Metrolink system.

This project was completed on time and on budget with members of the local historical society visiting the opening.
