Context

Stretford, one of Trafford’s town centres and an important driver in the economic growth of the borough, is a densely populated area with a diverse social mix. The town centre is located in a prominent position along the A56 corridor at the northern end of Trafford, benefiting from good links to the M60, excellent public transport connections and access to the Bridgewater Canal.

Regeneration work was needed to help Stretford achieve its full potential and provide a unique and attractive destination that meets the aspirations of the community.

Gillespies (Altrincham) was commissioned by Trafford Council to create a more open, attractive and useable space. The objective was to ensure that Stretford town centre and the surrounding areas were developed into a prosperous, vibrant, attractive and safe destination with a strong identity.

Work completed

The first stage of the project was to re-imagine the area outside the Stretford Mall shopping centre on Chester Road. This involved a major reworking of traffic, both pedestrian and vehicular, across the area.

The dark and unpleasant underpasses were filled in, bringing pedestrian traffic to the surface. Large volumes of foot traffic now pass over the road using the new pedestrian crossings across the junction.

Marshalls provided a combination of concrete paving blends and street furniture to meet the client’s brief.

Outcome

The landscaped area has helped create a more desirable public realm area where people can enjoy spending time in the space.

Modal paving and Mistral textured paving gives the area a contemporary, urban feel through the use of subtle blends. The slick greys are given a warm edge via the subtle pink tones of Modal Indian Granite.

The scheme is illuminated with Geo Light Stacks to create a striking, welcoming and modern space.
