Haydock Point, Haydock

Plans: Haydock Point is a proposed employment park in St Helens, at Junction 23 of the M6 where it meets the A580 East Lancashire Road. The proposals seek to create a new logistics and manufacturing development on land between the junction and Haydock Park Racecourse, comprising up to 167,000 square metres (1,800,000 square feet) of new floorspace, new transport infrastructure and structural landscaping.

The project will deliver major transport investment around Junction 23 of the M6 and the intersection with the A580 East Lancashire Road and A49 Lodge Lane. These improvements, funded and delivered by the development, will reduce journey times by improving the flow of traffic and improving safety by updating signalling, signage and priority use of the junction.
