I believe they're making a programme on his building of a near 100 storey hotel, that resembles the Shard............."Glass of 92" they're calling it!
If that's the case his involvement will be reduced but he will still remain a part of that programme. Local lad makes good at the theatre of screams and invests in his own city. Glass of 92? My word the creative power behind that is astonishing. ;-)

The Etihads going to look pretty awesome in 2045!

2min 30 East Stand has been squared off at the top and a FOURTH tier added. Corners filled in and large screen in East/South corner. Looks mint! If we built that then we would have the biggest and best stadium in UK. Would love to see that in my lifetime. We already have the best team/club and to have the best stadium too would simply be awesome.

Plans for a City centre park are in the media again. They originally appeared about 6 months ago.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news...-to-build-first-city-centre-park-in-100-years

It is based in the Piccadilly / Mancunian Way sector of the city centre which is the sector most closely connected to Manchester City.

There was also an announcement about 6 weeks ago which might be relevant to Manchester rail network.

Network Rail will now rapidly start the next stage of work to unblock Manchester’s railways after it was given £10 million in design and development funding. The work will examine options to resolve capacity and reliability problems on the network https://www.gov.uk/government/news/regions-across-england-to-benefit-from-transport-funding-boost.

Additionally work on electrification and expanding the Manchester to Leeds line is in the pipeline.

The Network Rail bit is a farce - they spent a fortune linking Piccadilly and Victoria but Grayling refused to sign off the extension of through platforms at Piccadilly - so the link to Victoria is a white elephant. Grayling asked NR to look at other options which they did - and there were nonE - so Grayling just ignored them and the plans are still with the MoT - and the result is the chaos we saw last year. The only net result of this is that the works will cost considerably more than when first agreed and consulted on.... How not to run a railway....

Sadly my guess is that park will be a red light and hard drugs no-go zone within weeks of opening, some of the roughest and most desperate street prostitution in Manchester congregates around Fairfield St and Travis/Adair Streets

Isn't that something Andy Burnham should be taking up with whichever fuckwit is now responsible (Shapps I believe)? According to Wiki, the national rail part is the only bit he (Burnham) doesn't have direct responsibility for.

I don’t think Burnham has the budget for that type of work... The Transport Secretary holds these purse strings and in recent years just about all The major rail infrastructure projects have been centred on London - London Overground, HS1, North London Line, Crossrail.. you just need to look at spending per head on Transport which is colossal in London and a pittance elsewhere.
