Facts - There is NO planned upgrade to the Rail infrastructure linking Burnley Manchester Road to Manchester Victoria

Developers and House Buyers - Hollins Cross Farm Burnley

In the planned upgrades to East Lancashire high speed rail links there is NO plan to electrify the link between BMR and Manchester Victoria.

So if you are planning to buy a house in the "New Burnley Executive Commuter Belt" think again - it will be years before you will be able to get to work in Manchester City Center in less than 80 minutes
Your journey will be 3 hours daily home to office and return.
1) Trying to find a parking space at Burnley Manchester Road Station
2) 60 minutes on the "Burnley Bone Shaker" trying to get a seat on a crowded hourly service
3) 20 mins on the tram in Manchester
4) "Shoe Leather" or "Loafers" !!.
5 days a week / 48 weeks per year or you could drive or take the X43 Bus services.
