The lease for the land where the new Heaton Park Tramway depot is to be constructed was finally signed today. This has been a long protracted process because it is public land where the new depot is to be built. Representatives of the Manchester Tramway Company and the Manchester Transport Museum Society signed the lease with Manchester City Council earlier today. This clears the way for the actual construction of the new Lakeside depot to begin in the not too distant future.
