Example text

Manchester can be seen as a model conurbation in that it developed a complex railway network and the city radiated out along it in all directions on the level plain of the Manchester Embayment. It will be shown that the network exhibited prototypical strengths and weaknesses and played a significant role in urban decentralisation.  Manchester, therefore, presented all the right conditions for the case study. Step 13. Finally, since this research commenced in the early 1990s, railway privatisation has taken place and there has been over ten years of economic growth before the recent down turn.

Railway trade unions lobbied on behalf of the industry, but this always ran the risk of being seen as self-serving by others and could work to the industry’s detriment.  The research aim was to put these into context and evaluate their weight, as compared with policies which were not focused on integration between the two sectors. The final element of the initial approach to the research was concerned with the physical out-turn of the institutional and policy interfaces. The research focused on the location of development, the impact this had on the utility of the railway network and, in turn, the changing geography of the railway network and the impact this had on the nature and location of development.
