The construction of the new A57 road and lifting bridge, which will bring an additional road into TraffordCity, has not yet been completed by our contractor Hochtief Buckingham and only when the works are FULLY complete, including all safety checks, will the completed project be delivered to Peel Land and Property and made available for public use.

Peel has always communicated that the road and bridge will be open by the end of the year and the contractor is still working towards this time scale.

Peel Land and Property has been committed to improving road infrastructure in and around Port Salford, the AJ Bell Stadium and TraffordCity for many years and as a company have privately invested £35 million into the new lifting bridge and extension of the A57 from Irlam.

The new bridge and road will form part of the highway network and will benefit the general public, local economy and community. 

A spokesperson from Peel Land and Property said: “Please be assured that Hochtief Buckingham and Peel are doing all they can to complete the new road and bridge and make it available for public use as soon as possible.”
