In his budget on 21st March the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced £130 million funding for the Northern Hub project.
This will increase capacity on the Sheffield-Manchester line and increase line speeds on this line and the Manchester-Bradford via Rochdale and Halifax and Manchester-Preston via Bolton lines. The Ordsall Chord, a new link in Manchester city centre was given £85 million of funding in the March 2011 budget. The development work of other aspects of the Northern Hub will continue as planned.
