Transport Assessment GUILD Line, Preston

Modal Group Ltd has been appointed by Trampower to provide the Transport Assessment for a proposal to build a new tramline in Preston, Lancashire. The tramline is planned to travel between Redscar at Junction 31A of the M6 to the citycentre railway station.  Part of the route will be on existing redundant railway track as well as street running closer to the City Centre.


A demonstration section has already been granted planning permission at Deepdale, close to the City Centre. Trampower has developed a revolutionary new tram and patented direct drive system, giving a saving in power of 75% compared to other trams. Trampower has also revolutionized the infrastructure requirements which allows for a more rapid installation and improved rail performance.


Modal Group will take the lead in preparing the Transport Assessment and assessing the likely impact on the local highway network.
