Iport is a greenfield development site located on a 337-acre site just off the M18 at junction 3, on the outskirts of Doncaster. Iport will have excellent connectivity with a number of transport networks. The development is next to the M18 and only 2 miles from the A1 and 10 miles away from the M1 meaning excellent road connectivity in the UK. With a new rail terminal being built as part of the development as well, the site will have access to the UK’s large rail freight network.
The site has been granted an outlined planning consent for 6 million sq ft of warehouse space and 3 million sq ft of detailed planning consent. The site will also contain a 35-acre strategic rail freight terminal.
Highlights of the development are:
The rail freight terminal will provide access to the site and enable the site to be connected to the rest of the UK’s rail network. The terminal will be able to accommodate trains that are up to 775m in length and be able to take a number of different gauges. The apron next to the tracks will be able to support HGV’s which weigh 50 tonnes, as well as hold a 4 high container stack with a maximum load of 122 tonnes. Next to the apron a storage area will be present to stack containers together.
The rail terminal will have a number of different facilities including:
In late 2016, Lidl announced plans to locate a new distribution centre at the iport site at the cost of £70 million. Liidl will be joining Amazon, Fellowes and CEVA who already operate on the site.
