Four Lane Ends metro station

  • Description

    "Most of the stations on the new Metro were converted from old British Rail stations, but Four Lane Ends was an entirely new station, built as a rail/bus interchange as part of the integrated transport system that was intended. Although the Metro opened on time the day after this photograph was taken, the Integrated Transport plan never happened, as it became a victim of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's devotion to privatisation, so now, instead of Metro and the buses co-ordinating and helping each other, they compete with each other." Photo by Dr Neil Clifton, 1980.
