Investment trust Segro and property developer Roxhill say that the Segro Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway, a 700 acre `inland port’ with a new rail freight terminal, pointing out that it neighbours East Midlands Airport – the UK’s second largest freight airport.
Segro is funding £100 million of infrastructure at the ten-plot site including a 50 acre rail terminal and road improvements, including better connections to the M1 motorway.
Segro chief operating officer, Andy Gulliford, said: “SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway will be truly multi-modal: with its proximity to the M1 providing easy road access to the whole of the UK; the fact that it neighbours East Midlands Airport – the UK’s second largest freight airport – and that we are building a Strategic Freight Interchange as part of the scheme.”
Burbage Realty, CBRE and Savills are agents for the scheme.
