    I think it should yes. It is quite limited actually and I'd like to explore more places..

    They should also make the trams more regular, it's terrible in rush hour.

    It's insane how busy it gets, and can cause infinite frustration. But it's a load quicker than getting the bus. It's expensive, and their ticket inspectors seem to think they're secret police of some sort. But I think it's excellent that it will extended all over the city.

    I can't believe they're making a stop called "Abraham Moss"

    I'm glad about the Didsbury bit though. By the time it's ready I will have got a car though.

    Ah yeah, maybe.

    It looks good, I spose they have to rely on the private sector though, there's a chance that it might not go ahead.

    Yeah I know the government is saying that if the budget goes above what it is already then they're pulling out. Because they're funding most of it. It would be kind of silly to cancel now though, because I've seen some of the development and tunnels they've built out in east manchester.
