Salford Crescent Railway Station
Salford Crescent Station opened in 1987. It is one of two railway stations in Salford, the other being Salford Central.

The station consists of a single island platform with a ticket office and waiting room. It is also signposted as "For University of Salford", as the station is located in between the University's Peel Park Campus and the Frederick Road Campus.

Salford Crescent is on two main rail lines. It forms the point of a split in the Manchester-Preston Line, with local services running on to Manchester Victoria and long-distance services going to Manchester Piccadilly. It is also part of the line between Manchester and Southport. Due to its location it is frequently used as an interchange between the two lines.
The A6
The A6 is Britain's fourth longest road and one of the main historic north-south roads in England. It currently runs for 299 miles from Luton in Bedfordshire to Carlisle in Cumbria, although it formerly started at a junction with the A1 at Barnet.

Running north west from Luton, the road travels through Bedford, bypasses Rushden, Kettering and Market Harborough, continues through Leicester, Loughborough, Derby and Matlock before going through the Peak District to Bakewell, Buxton, Stockport, Manchester, Salford, Pendleton, Irlams o' th' Height, Pendlebury, Swinton, Walkden, Little Hulton, Bolton, Chorley, Preston, Lancaster, Kendal and Penrith before reaching Carlisle.
