Network Rail acquires multi-million-pound site

Property consultant Legat Owen led the sale of Crewe Truck Stop off Cowley Way on behalf of an unnamed client.

The four-acre site will be retained by the Truck Stop on a short-term leaseback until Network Rail requires it later this year.

The transport company said that the site has “not specifically” been acquired for HS2.

BNP Paribas Real Estate advised Network Rail on the multi-million-pound sale. The exact price is undisclosed.

Guy Cooke, Senior Director of BNP Paribas Real Estate, said: “This site is a strategic acquisition to support our clients ongoing future projects in and around the Crewe area.”

Elsewhere in Crewe, BNP advised Network Rail on its acquisition of the 15,838 sq ft Mannin House in April 2022.

Legat Owen is also active elsewhere in Crewe, having been assigned by developer Panattoni to market 1.4m sq ft of logistics space at Panattoni Park. AEW has also appointed the company to complete the sale of two industrial units at Crewe Gates Industrial Estate.

Matt Pochin, director at Legat Owen, commented: “Crewe has a huge amount of future potential with a significant amount of investment and development in the pipeline, not least Cheshire East Council’s plans to redevelop the train station which is located only a quarter of a mile away from the Cowley Road site.”

“not specifically” been acquired for HS2 – doesn’t the proposed tunnel run right under here to the station?

With diesel and load theft on the rise this is seriously bad news for the Haulage industry, where do you think HGV drivers are expected to park now
We’ve seen an increase of truckstop closures over the last couple of years
Drivers are away from home all week and need these facilities to sleep safely at night, get a shower and some cooked food
It seems all those in power just don’t care, as long as the shop shelves are full

Because HS2 is dead

They need to find somewhere for Crewe truck stop to relocate in the area. I myself as a truck driver used this facility for years, as it was a perfect spot to stop half way for Holly head etc….

The lad on the gate has been there since the start and a absolute top asset to that place, always a friendly welcome from him.

Absolutely terrible news and all truckers should email the local MP.

130+ spaces for truck drivers who need these facilities will be going.
