Chapel Street , Salford
A former Salford Corporation bus, by now operated by the SELNEC PTE, turns into Greengate after negotiating the long tunnel of Greengate under Manchester Exchange Station, which is actually in Salford. It is just about to pass Salford Bus Station, just out of sight on the right, which is almost in Manchester. The bridge is Cathedral Approach, and was the approach road to the station from the Manchester side. It still exists, although the station itself, the roof of which can just be seen, has been completely demolished. The adjacent Victoria Station now caters for all the services which formerly used Exchange. The two stations were in fact joined by a common platform which was by far the longest in the British Isles.
This is one of a series of views featuring buses in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. LinkExternal link
