Jun 2020 – Preston, Lancashire

Further to the report in RR 166 on the Longridge path extension to Deepdale, there is also a private promoter plan, reported optimistically for over a decade now, for a new tram on the old formation from the city via the Deepdale area to a Park & Ride in the area of the former Courtaulds works, adjacent to the M6 motorway. This project is claimed to be able to share the trackbed with pedestrian and cycle use, and most recently a start date for construction of March 2018 was predicted, but raising of the necessary finance and any work on the site keeps slipping.
