Winvic's mega logistics park: CIOB members visit

24 August 2018

Members in the East Midlands recently gained an insight into the work being undertaken on the 700-acre SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway (SLPEMG) development.

Winvic Construction invited members to visit the Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) which is half way through the three-year programme to create an ‘inland port’ adjacent to Midlands airport.

Operations manager, Rob Bull, and the project construction teams, gave members an overview and tour of the scheme, which has planning consent for approximately six million square feet of logistics accommodation and will incorporate a 50-acre Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI), with a rail freight terminal capable of handling up to 16, 775m long freight trains a day.
