Irwell City Park regeneration scheme will transform 8km of riverside area

Consultant Davis Langdon has won a deal to work on a £40m regeneration project in Manchester.

The firm has been appointed project and cost managers on Irwell City Park, a Broadway Malyan and Form Associates designed waterway scheme between Salford Quays and Salford University.

The project, backed by a consortium of local councils and developers, aims to boost private sector investment and job opportunities by transforming an 8km stretch along the banks of the River Irwell.

Paul Donlan, the Davis Langdon partner leading the scheme said: “This is a key project of regional, if not national, significance and we are absolutely delighted to have secured such an exciting commission.

“It will be a great opportunity to work with the three local authorities, Central Salford URC and leading landowners and developers along this 8km stretch of the Irwell - which is right on our doorstep in Manchester and Salford.”
