Although Metrolink had originally promised the new South Manchester Line was coming in Spring 2011 they were still testing it in July.
The latest delay is a computer communication problem.
The problem is that the new system is as advanced as the current system is old, so it’s a bit like connecting your modern PC to a Commodore 64 and making them work together at this higher level.
Of course being [wikipop]Amiga[/wikipop] and [wikipop]Macintosh[/wikipop] people we would not know anything about that stuff. 😉
