Regeneration on an impressive scale, the Longbridge masterplan extends across 468 acres bridging both Birmingham and Worcestershire. With Phil Jones Associates strategies to integrate the site with the transport network it is accessible by over 350 buses and 150 trains a day.
An ideal location for sustainable urban development, the site is accessible from M42 junctions 1 and 2 and M5 junction 4, which are monitored as part of an infrastructure strategy.
