A new multi-million pound rail freight terminal at Birch Coppice Business Park is set to help ease growing traffic congestion in the West Midlands.
The terminal will act as an inland railhead, receiving incoming containerised goods from UK ports such as Southampton. The facility will also handle outgoing containerised freight for exporting companies in the region.
An average freight train removes the equivalent of 50 heavy goods vehicles from roads.
The deal to secure the huge investment in North Warwickshire was handled by Birmingham-based Eagleton & Co, acting on behalf of IM Properties and NAI Fuller Peiser.
IM Properties, the owner and developer of Birch Coppice Business Park, has ploughed more than £20 million into the regeneration of the site. n Mike Eagleton, Eagleton & Co, with Tim Suffield of NAI Fuller Peiser
