Plans for major expansion to Manchester Piccadilly rail station including large numbers of apartments and commercial space. This is the busiest rail station in Manchester, currently with around 27m passengers annually which is expected to increase to over 50m by 2035 as the High Speed rail network linking numerous English cities is constructed over the next decade and local rail/tram links developed further.
