Trafford Park Euroterminal

To the west of the Old Trafford Football Ground is the Trafford Park Euroterminal.  This container transhipment point opened in the summer of 1993 at the cost of £11 million.  It is one of nine serving the UK.  It has the capacity to handle 100,000 containers a year on its 20-acre site.

This site has been a railyard for a long time as the image below shows.  It was taken in 1953.  The orange arrow shows the site of the present Euroterminal.  The purple arrow indicates the site of an Old Trafford Football Ground car park.
