Manchester port development goes ahead

Irlam is set to become a hive of construction as preparatory works for a new port development take place. There is an irony here that just 27 years Salford Docks were closed and its regeneration as Salford Quays involved ripping out the very infrastructure that is now being proposed for Irlam and Barton. Back then they said rail and water transport were things of the past.

The construction is likely to cause plenty of disruption and the proposed highway improvements seem piecemeal and lack strategic vision. Surely a motorway spur connecting the site to the M62 would be most appropriate.
