Driver’s eye view of the Met’s new Second City Crossing

By Barbara Metcalfe at

For those making the commute from Sale to Manchester on the Met, the usual view is normally the back of someone’s head or a look out of the windows as the scenery whizzes by.  Not many passengers get to see what the driver sees.

To mark  yesterdays opening of the Second City Crossing a camera was put in the cab to capture Manchester at speed.

This latest 1.3km stretch of track through the city centre links together a network 93 stops strong, with over 60 miles of track and a record-breaking 37 million passengers a year.

 The Second City Crossing runs from the Deansgate-Castlefield stop to St.Peter’s Square via Cross Street, and eventually on to Exchange Square and Victoria.
