Peel Land and Property is currently delivering two elements of the Port Salford scheme. As well as the first phase of the road infrastructure works - a giant logistics building is now fully operational for food and drink logistic specialists, Culina with an investment of £23 million by Peel Land and Property.
As well as improving local transport connections and reducing congestion, a highways improvement scheme will help support the development of Port Salford - a new warehousing and distribution centre for the region which will become an important site for creating future economic growth, jobs and prosperity.
Plans for the delivery of the berth and railway connections are also underway.
The Department for Transport, via Pinch Point, has also supported the Port Salford access works by funding £1m towards the £2m scheme.
The A57 road improvement scheme and new dual carriageway link bridge is a £50 million project to join Salford with Trafford and beyond. The works undertaken by Peel Land and Property connect the A57 from the AJ Bell Stadium junction at Peel Green, then across the Manchester Ship Canal to link to Trafford Boulevard and the M60 via Trafford City – home to intu Trafford Centre and a host of other retail and leisure attractions.
This project has been made possible through an investment of £31 million by Peel Land and Property, £15 million from the Government’s Regional Growth Fund and £4 million from Salford City Council.
Port Salford Greenway
As well as improvements to the A57, cyclists and pedestrians are set to benefit from an enhanced 1.5km pathway running from Barton and Winton towards Worsley. Peel Land and Property via the Community Environment Fund, Salford City Council and TfGM funded the £1 million project.
Phase one of the Port Salford Greenway has already been completed including new and repaired footbridges, upgraded lighting, refurbished motorway subways including new lighting and community artwork and felled trees have been turned into benches.
Phase two of the project which will extend the route by a further 1.5 km between Port Salford and the Bridgewater Canal in Worsley is now well underway.
The route will improve accessibility to a number of green spaces and leisure uses including Cleavley allotments and football pitches, Winton Bowling, Tennis and Social Club, Alder Forest and AFC Monton.
