Liberty Park Widnes sits at the heart of South Liverpool’s thriving employment zone which is acknowledged both regionally and nationally as a premier location for a wide variety of business occupiers. The area already plays host to Jaguar Landrover’s 300 acre state-of-the-art Halewood facility and many of their satellite businesses as well as the UK’s fasting growing airport, John Lennon Liverpool. The area is set for further exponential growth with the recent opening of Peel’s £400m Liverpool2 Deepwater Port.
Liverpool2 Deepwater Port comprises a new £400 million deep-water container port on the River Mersey and is the UK’s most central container port and geographically the first port of call to Europe from the Americas. Liverpool2 is able to handle 95% of the world’s container ships and links up with the Manchester Ship Canal and road and rail networks to cement the area as a major UK distribution and logistics hub.
Jaguar Landrover and John Lennon Liverpool Airport are both within 3 miles of the site and Liverpool City Centre lies approximately 9 miles to the North West.
Liberty Park is situated at the centre of the proposed 3MG rail freight distribution zone. 3MG is set to provide rail connected distribution centres and an on-site intermodal rail freight terminal. It is destined to be one of the UK’s largest inter-modal logistics parks and offers unrivalled access to the UK’s deep-sea ports.
The vision for 3MG is to create:
> Enhancement of road and rail infrastructure
> The release of additional land and property development opportunities
> Co-ordinated branding and promotion
> Co-ordinated management of infrastructure
> Collaboration of public and private sector interests and initiatives.
