East Midlands Gateway | Inland Port & Logistics Hub | £135m

Segro launches £100m East Midlands Gateway site




Quote:
Developers have launched a £100m inland port close to East Midlands airport. The announcement is the first significant fruit of Segro’s tie-up with specialist developer Roxhill.

The 700-acre East Midlands Gateway site will kick-start Segro’s ambition to become a major player in the competitive Big Box market.

The site combines links to the M1 and East Midlands Airport with a major new rail freight terminal.

SEGRO is funding £100m of infrastructure at East Midlands Gateway including a 50 acre rail terminal and extensive road improvements. Ten plots are now available to occupiers.

A partnership with Highways England and other highways authorities means there will also be £35 million of road improvements associated with East Midlands Gateway, including better connections at Junction 24 and Junction 24A of the M1.

Andy Gulliford, Chief Operating Officer at Segro said: “We are relishing working with Roxhill, having entered into our partnership 18 months ago, and will be creating some of the best logistics space in the country. We are confident East Midlands Gateway will be a highly successful scheme for its occupiers and the local community.

The rail freight hub links directly to the Castle Donington freight line, which provides access to major UK ports such as Southampton, Felixstowe and London Gateway.

Burbage Realty, CBRE and Savills are agents for the scheme.

Thought I'd create a thread for this project.

It's right next to East Midlands Airport and band on the border between Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, this is a significant investment in the region that may potentially bring 11,000 new jobs to the area. It will also cement East Midlands Airport as the #1 UK Airport for Freight. This is a really exciting project for the whole region and all of the three shires and cities.

The overall investment is made up of £100m of investment from private sector for the inland port facilities and the train logistics hub. There is a separate but related investment of £35m from Highways England to reconfigure the road network around the logistics hub.

It dominates the skyline as you come on the A453 from Nottingham. Some very large AMAZON-type warehouses are already up on the site. The scale of the place is massive, especially compared to other developments in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby.

The geographically closest city is Nottingham. Technically speaking the development is in Leicestershire. And Derby is the 2nd closest city. All three will benefit though from its development and the jobs that come with it.

Announced Tenants

Amazon | 500,000 sq ft

Nestle (XPO Logistics) | 700,000 sq ft

Kuhne Nagel | 200,000 sq ft

Shop Direct (LittleWoods, Very) | 550,000 sq ft

Quote:
SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway is located in the near centre of England, with Nottingham 13 miles to the north-east, Leicester 20 miles to the south and Derby 14 miles to the north west which brings the benefit of a three city labour supply with one million people within a 30 minute drive.

Yes an extremely important development. Marketing Derby reported back in March that Amazon had signed up to be the first tenant taking a 500,000 sq ft unit creating 3,500 jobs
https://www.marketingderby.co.uk/new...ands%20airport

The overall development is more like £700 million and could deliver over 11,000 jobs, and the highways work is well under way with the bridge put in over the M1 in may this year.

East Midlands Airport is already a major employer (over 7,000 employees) and this would be a substantial economic boost to the region and would make the airport area a significant employment zone.

Surprised there wasn't already a thread for this given how effin' huge it is. And also because it takes a proper railway line *THIS* close to the airport. Normally that's the sort of thing that'd spark 5000 pages of feverish speculation from people like me as to whether they could ever take it that little bit closer and give EMA a proper passenger station....

Another one of these is due for planning submission in Q2 of 2019, between Leicester and Hinckley on the M69.

Not quite as large, but still offering 8,400 jobs.

Doesn't the East Midlands Rail Freight Terminal end close to the runway, on the other side from the airport buildings? Shocking that they didn't link the airport to the rail network with these plans...

Yep takes a line close to the airport but pretty useless for future passenger services. The freight terminal is off the freight line which runs from trent junction across the southern side of derby but the connection doesn't facilitate any trains from the midland mainline (e..g Nottm, Derby or Leicester) - see image below



Of course, if we are talking about railway lines running 'so close' to the airport then we can't not mention HS2 ...

So what kind of freight would you deliver by rail to this new inland port?

The rail connection is all about window dressing the development with a few green trappings.

Marks and Spencer have a distribution centre very nearby. It has a rail link that has never been used since the day it opened.

You are kidding me!

Marks and Spencer have a distribution centre just down the road. It too has a rail connection: it has never been used. Having rail spur is a sop to the planners and the green lobby.

Only a maniac would use rail for anything but bulk commodities and even there rail has lost market share over the past few years.

The first 800 jobs are now being advertised, mostly with Amazon

In employment terms, this logistics park is as significant for Nottingham, as the new HMRC offices are. Obviously the jobs don't pay nearly as well, but at least it will go some way towards replacing the lost retail jobs in the city centres

Now we just need a tram link from Nottingham/Derby to this and the airport
