SEGRO Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway (SLPEMG) is a nationally significant infrastructure project with a 50-acre strategic rail freight interchange and six million square feet of industrial warehouse space.
The scheme began in February 2017 with major civils and infrastructure works, which have transformed the 700-acre site from a blank canvas to a bustling inland port.
The project is centrally located within the UK distribution and logistics market, offering immediate access to the UK’s motorway network as well as dedicated rail and air freight services.
The rail interchange provides the first dedicated service between the Midlands and the port of Felixstowe. It is capable of handling up to sixteen 775-metre-long freight trains daily.
Challenges overcome included the proximity of East Midlands International Airport, pipes bringing water from the Derwent reservoirs to Leicester and the diversion of a gas main.
Constructing high-bay warehouses and a rail terminal on a hillside posed significant challenges to the design and layout of the site. Large, heavily landscaped bunds were constructed along the northern and western boundaries to screen views from nearby villages.
