Burnley Manchester Train Link to be Completed by 2050 say Council Chiefs

Burnley's much anticipated and delayed train link with the city of Manchester is finally approaching completion with council chiefs declaring they expect the line to be fully operational "by the year 2050".

Leader of Lancashire County Council, Jenny Mein told Breaking Burnley News that "Burnley is an enterprising town and the people have been waiting a long time, now we can proudly announce the wait is over and the first trains will be running any day now in the year 2050".

Local regular commuter John Water who worked on building Burnley's first ever train link back in 1997 said "It's about time, people are getting fed up of commuting to local cities by canal."

Although the introduction of the railway network to Burnley is relatively new, it has proven popular with many commuters enjoying trips as far away as Accrington.
