Central to the region
Central to the future

Middlewood Locks is situated next to Salford Central station which, together with the surrounding area, is currently undergoing a multimillion-pound transformation.

Work is underway to deliver the Northern Hub, an extensive government funded programme to improve links between major Northern Cities, leading to significant improvements in Manchester and Salford’s rail infrastructure. Not only will there be a fast connection between Salford Central Station and Manchester’s other main rail stations, but also direct services to Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester Airport, Chester, Newcastle, York and Warrington.
