Deansgate Station

I took these pictures of Deansgate station  as I passed through.

Deansgate station needs a lot of improvement.

This Google Map shows the area.

Around Deansgate Station

I don’t think, I’ve seen an area of a UK city, with so many parked cars. Why aren’t people coming into the City by using the trains and the trams?

All that wasted land could be used for something useful like housing or commecial developments.

I walked to the station and I used the lift to get to the platform, but even so, I still had to climb quite a few steps. I wonder that it is station that many avoid because, the access is better at other stations.

On the other hand it is an interchange to the Manchester Metrolink at Deansgate-Castlefield.

Also when the Ordsall Chord is completed and when a full timetable is implemented, surely there will be many more services through the station.

So hopefully, improvements are planned.

  1. You are right in your wondering. Deans gate is regarded as a dump, not only that, it isn’t near the places most people want to visit either. It is also very isolated – there ia often only one person on the platform.
