Station's £5m Touch Of Glass

They will never call it dingy again - once windows the size of two tennis courts have been installed at Salford's Central Station.

The station is getting a glass-fronted entrance hall and a new ticket office in a £5m transformation, which also includes new taxi and bus facilities and information screens.

The project is being paid for by Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Authority, with a contribution from development agency Manchester Enterprises.

Transport authority chairman Roger Jones, visiting the station to watch the glass being lifted into place, couldn't resist giving it a bit of a polish.
