Cllr. Hamid Khurram, Labour’s Executive Member for Transport, unveiled the restored Railway Station Clock at Bolton Station.
The clock has not been working for years under the previous Conservative administration. Bolton Labour has made it a priority to get these jobs done and restore pride in the town and its heritage. The clock is one of many projects, including the Market cross repainted in gold and the Fred Dibnah wheel turning again.
“It’s great news that the clock is working again after years of neglect from the Conservative administration.
“Not only is it relied upon by people making journeys in and out of Bolton Interchange, it’s also an important piece of historical architecture.
“Landmarks like this are an important part of Bolton town centre’s heritage and this latest work complement other recent restorations to the Market Cross and our war memorial.”
The clock tower was built back in the late 1800s when it was part of the old Trinity Street Station.
It was rebuilt to be part of the new railway station in the late 1980s.’
