Is Network Rail's multi-billion plan for rail expansion good news for the North West?
Councillors are set to approve the demolition of Preston bus station.
A report out today claims taxpayers face a 'significant' bill following a government U-turn over who operates trains in our region.
Preston bus station could be demolished after councillors in the city voted in principle to tear it down.
But before it is bulldozed, they want another report on the cost of saving it.
It costs the city council around £300,000 a year to keep it running, which it says it can no longer afford.
An initial report by Lancashire County Council found refurbishing it would cost between £17m and £23m.
Now the city council will appoint its own consultants to get another estimate for refurbishment.
Preston bus station is set to be demolished after town hall buses say they can't afford to pay £300,000 a year to keep it open.
The city council said taxpayer's money would be better spent knocking it down and building a more modern facility.
Councillors will make the decision on December 17.
Drivers are being warned that part of the M56 will be closed this weekend to allow a bridge for the expanding Metrolink tram network to be installed.
The motorway will be closed between junctions 2 and 5 from 10pm tomorrow for 24 hours.
Buses are to drive at 20 miles per hour within Manchester city centre under a new voluntary code of conduct for operators.
All bus companies running services into the city centre are expected to sign up to the CityPLAN agreement which means drivers will stick to the limit within the inner ring road.
They'll drive at 10mph or less in busy locations such as Parker Street, Oldham Street and Shudehill Interchange.
Manchester City Council say they're looking into ways of creating more 20 mile per hour zones across the city. They also expect the move to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists.
