Lord Lieutenant Lancashire Bay Gateway Opening Plaque

Bay Gateway Officially Opened by Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire

The Heysham Bay Gateway is now officially open. On the 2nd March, the Lord Lieutenant of Lancashire unveiled a commemorative plaque at the beginning of the road. You can read more about the official opening on the Lancashire County Council website.

Let's have a look at five benefits the new link road will provide -

  1. No more long, congested journeys through Lancaster. 15 minutes from the M6 to the Port of Heysham for Irish Sea ferry crossings to Dublin, Warrenpoint and Belfast.
  2. A 600 space park and ride site. Boosting the local economy and improving access to Lancaster city centre.
  3. Better air quality. Pollution in Lancaster and Carnforth will be massively reduced.
  4. Regeneration for the whole area. Thousands of new local job opportunities.
  5. Major investment for Heysham Port. The new link road has helped with the planned £10m expansion of the Port of Heysham in 2017, including a new link-span bridge for larger RoRo vessels, new pontoon & port entrance.

Take advantage of the new Bay Gateway and book your freight ferry trip from Heysham to Ireland & the Isle of Man.
