Prologis Park Coventry
Prologis Park Coventry is a 265 acre mixed-use development that has been built on the site of the former Coventry Colliery and Homefire coke-producing plant. Before starting construction work, Prologis had to carry out an extensive £18 million programme to improve the infrastructure, which included retaining and improving the existing colliery rail link.
- As a former colliery and coke-producing plant, the site was heavily contaminated and one of the first steps that Prologis took was to remediate the land.
- Once this phase was completed, parklands, lakes, footpaths and cycleways were created alongside the on-site road network.
- The rail-link was also re-instated and a dedicated Rail Management Company was established to administer the use of the track and to organise the maintenance of the line.
- Off-site works included a new road linking the site to the A444 and extensive works to Junction 3 of the M3, including widening the slip roads and installing traffic lights.
Since the completion of these infrastructure works, Prologis Park Coventry has created new homes, a 60 acre country park and thousands of new jobs for the area, making a significant contribution to the regeneration of the north Coventry region.
