It is time: Clock tower restored and ticking again

Engineers have been toiling away on the beloved landmark to bring the clock back to its former glory.

The task was carried out in collaboration with Transport for Greater Manchester, who hold ultimate responsibility for the clock tower.

Cllr Hamid Khurram, Bolton Council’s Executive Cabinet Member for Transport, Housing and Highways, expressed his satisfaction:

“It’s fantastic news that the clock is once again ticking.

“Not only does it serve as a reliable reference point for those coming and going from Bolton Interchange, it is also a significant piece of historical architecture.

“Monuments like this play a crucial role in preserving Bolton town centre’s heritage, and this recent restoration work complements the other renovations done on the Market Cross and our war memorial.”

The clock tower was initially constructed in the late 1800s as part of the old Trinity Street Station.

In the late 1980s, it was reconstructed to form part of the new railway station.
