Council seeks contractors for Chapel Street work

Michael Hunt

Salford City Council requires contractors for the construction of new pavements and new street lighting on Chapel Street in central Salford between Oldfield Road and Trinity Way.

English Cities Fund was granted planning consent last month for a large-scale redevelopment of Salford's core including 849 homes, 390 hotel rooms, 250,000 sq ft of retail and leisure and 2m sq ft of office space.

Public realm is a key part in the regeneration of central Salford with cycle routes, footpaths and new open spaces included in the design, with Chapel Street being one of the zones targeted for regeneration in the planning application by English Cities Fund.

Morrison Construction has recently been awarded a £2.5m from Salford Urban Regeneration Company to improve traffic flow into Salford city centre.

The work includes widening and partially reconstructing three roads close to the M602 roundabout, Broad Street, Albion Way and Liverpool Street.

Salford City Council said the £6m construction contract, covering the area between Oldfield Road and Trinity Way, is for nine months. Deadline for submitting tenders is Monday 22 March at 12pm.
