Multi-modal Port & Port centric employment opportunities

November 2020

Port Warrington is an existing port, warehousing, open storage and distribution facility with a berth on north bank of the Manchester Ship Canal. It sits adjacent to the West Coast Mainline and the proposed Warrington Western Link road.

Peel L&P and Peel Ports have been working with Warrington Council to bring forward a vision for the port and surrounding land aligned with the Council’s economic, spatial and transport plans. This is encapsulated in the Warrington Waterfront Vision and Warrington Means Business economic plan:  “The approval of the Western Link road enables the development of a major new port-based business park alongside the Manchester Ship Canal at Port Warrington. With access to the Ship Canal this provides a unique opportunity for a multimodel business area with direct access by road to the Western Link, rail to the West Coast main line and water to the Manchester Ship Canal. Furthermore, Port Warrington provides direct Ship Canal linkage to the enhanced Port Liverpool and its international trade routes. The development of Warrington Waterfront includes direct pedestrian access to the proposed National Rail Hub at Bank Quay Rail Station with its interconnectivity with the West Coast Main Line, Northern Powerhouse Rail and HS2. Warrington Waterfront is set to become one of the UK’s premier business locations.” Warrington Means Business, 2019.
