Go ahead for Port Salford

Peel, advised by Indigo Planning, has received the go-ahead from Salford Council for Port Salford, a £400 million multi-modal freight exchange for Greater Manchester.

The terminal will be built on a 339 acre site on the bank of the Manchester Ship Canal between Barton Bridge and Irlam in Eccles.

It will enable the large scale transfer of freight between rail, road and sea, including two new container ship berths on the Manchester Ship Canal and 1.6 million sq ft (150,000 sq m) of rail-linked warehouses.
