LSI making tracks in Wigan for transport interchange

  • Comment
NEWS

Norwich-based LSI Architects is working on a masterplan for a 37,000m 2transport interchange in Wigan. The project, which could cost up to £100 million, is being proposed by developer Morston Assets, which will make a planning application by the end of July.

The scheme will involve merging the town's two railway stations, which face each other across a busy road, into one new building. The 'multimodal interchange' will bring the West Coast Mainline and east-west rail link through the same building. The development would include a coach station and a new road link to the M6. Developers hope the scheme will provide a catalyst for further regeneration initiatives.

'The project has enormous potential to create a new mixed-use urban quarter with excellent accessibility, regenerating many acres of brownfield land right next to Wigan's historic core, ' said project architect David Thompson.

Morston Assets managing director Tom Harrison said the programme was the key to redeveloping Wigan. 'The potential for developing around the site is tremendous, ' he said.
