Rochdale Town Centre

Progressive, dynamic and pioneering, Rochdale supports physical regeneration projects of various sizes throughout the borough. Recent and imminent town centre projects include:

Rochdale Riverside (Genr8 Scheme)

Construction is underway on the £150 million new retail and leisure development in the town centre.  Wilmot Dixon started on site in early 2018.

Metrolink comes to town

Completed in March 2014, the Rochdale arm of the Metrolink service sees trams arriving in the town centre every 12 minutes, enabling easy access to Manchester and beyond.

River Roch re-opening

The historic structure, a stunning medieval bridge, has been revealed as part of a £250m scheme which has reopened the River Roch and transformed the vicinity.

Easier access to The Wheatsheaf

Completed in summer 2015, The Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre has a new and accessible entrance on Baillie Street.

Park your bike – safely

The Shopmobility and TfGM cycle hub on River Street, alongside the bus station, offers a safe place to leave your bike.
