Manchester tram scheme gets EU loan (Get your begging bowl out, Hammerson)

Link to web site
"Manchester's Metrolink expansion scheme is to receive £500 million in long-term low-rate loans from the European Investment Bank.

"The EIB, the EU's long-term lending arm, offers finance for major projects seen as promoting EU economic polices. In the last five years, it has provided more than £17 billion for UK projects.

"The money for Manchester was described by the EIB today as part of the bank's pledge to support:
"sustainable public transport in leading European cities, and to reduce reliance on private car use."

"The Network, our kid:"

"Sound mate, sound."
