The Western Gateway Infrastructure Scheme (WGIS) is £30M worth of road improvements that are being delivered by a joint venture between Hochtief and the Buckingham Group. BWB has been commissioned to provide civil, structural and environmental engineering and infrastructure design services for the project.
The works around Salford include realigning the existing A57, a mile-long new dual carriageway link to Trafford Way and a new lift bridge over the Manchester Ship Canal. Improvements to local roads and junctions are included in the project to improve access to the area and boost regeneration.
The WGIS scheme is needed as part of developer Peel Group's Port Salford development to reduce traffic on local roads and relieve peak time congestions on the M60 Barton Bridge.
