Connectivity to the popular Leyland Trading Estate is shortly to be enhanced with improvements works to the bridge nearing completion says commercial property agent Prop-Search.
The Irthlingborough Road bridge, linking the town to the Leyland Trading Estate and on to Irthlingborough, was closed in October 2018 and demolished as part of Network Rail’s electrification works on the Bedford to Kettering and Corby line – to allow clearance for electrified overhead line equipment to safely pass underneath. However, after work started last November, it is due to be completed and open to vehicles and pedestrians by the summer.
Commenting on the continuing popularity of Leyland Trading Estate, Chris Billson added: “Many occupiers attracted to Estate are so as it offers a good mix of businesses, and modern new and refurbished accommodation, with the added benefit of on-site estate management and security. Likewise, its flexible lease packages – with commitments from just 12 months up to long-term rental options.”
Leyland Trading Estate has itself seen expansion over the past few years with the development of an additional 42,447 sq ft, part funded by the South Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP). This new space – in unit sizes from 542 sq ft up to 8,928 sq ft – brings the Estate up to just over 230,000 sq ft and has proved extremely popular with local and regional businesses.
Business looking for new or additional accommodation can still benefit from opportunities within the Leyland Trading Estate. Two brand new units of 6,696 sq ft ft are immediately available for occupation, along with older, but nevertheless, modern stock from just 1,050 sq ft.
