Demolished in 1964 nothing was really every developed here - just became one of the biggest car parks in the UK. We had a court built, a police station, then later a coach park.
If you remember I did a short vlog in October this year telling you about the current mass investment in Blackpool, a new Imax Theater, Museum, new hotels, a brand new tram terminus with restaurants along the new tram line extension and much more.
Well I kinda knew what was to come a big secret that the council held close until today - welcome to the new Blackpool, the new Blackpool Central!
Built in 4 stages this area will under go massive redevelopment, to be called Blackpool Central, It will see an attractions similar to what Disney World have – and unlike anything currently on offer in this country.
This will attract over an extra half a million visitors to the Blackpool spending an estimated extra £75m, creating over 1000 new jobs!
My town, your town or your play ground for families is filmy on the map and this will help improve many many another areas across the Fylde coast.
This is why a new train service Great North Western will be running trains to Blackpool from London along side Virgins existing stock, new electric trains from Northern helping to bring visitors in from Manchester Airport, a new tram extension from Blackpool North Station, and If this doesn’t get more trains running on the South Fylde line ‘calls for a passing loop?
