Manchester viaduct to be turned into New York-style urban park

A Manchester viaduct which has been out of use for 50 years is to be turned into a New York-style urban park. Grade II listed Castlefield Viaduct, built in 1892, will open next summer as a temporary National Trust park to test ideas for its long-term future. The viaduct could ultimately be turned into a green space similar to New York’s High Line “park in the sky”. It was last used in 1969 to to carry heavy rail traffic in and out of Manchester Central railway station.
The National Trust plan is similar to the New York park but it would not be a through route to other parts of the city. Members of the public are being encouraged to suggest long-term ideas for the viaduct.
