The Preston GUILD tramway will be professionally designed by engineering and architectural teams. Consultations are on going with relevant stakeholders like the local highway and planning authorities, hospital, utility companies, UCLAN, Network Rail etc.
Eric Wright, a local Civil Engineering company has signed a memorandum of co-operation, and will draw up a work programme in agreement with the highway authority. This will minimise the disruption of traffic and the economic life of businesses along the tram route. A contract has been signed to raise the £25million pounds needed, and initial funding should be available early in 2019.
