What a nice surprise for all cyclists and pedestrians who have for years been having to put up with having to go over an abandoned rail line at the back of the new Broadheath Community Centre to cut through either from Sinderland Road or in the opposite direction will now have a good quality path to use.
Developers of the community centre have now cut up the train line and surrounding rail infrastructure and made way for what will be a new path.
The line though is still classed as live by owners Network Rail and the debate about permission rumbles on.
Next year sometime it is believed that a steam train will be using this line, although we have also heard that it could be used as a cycle route something we and many other people would prefer.
The community centre in Broadheath is looking great, and will be well used and loved by residents from all over Trafford.
