Few Places Remaining

Join us in visiting one of the largest infrastructure schemes undertaken in the UK, and constructed in one of the nation’s most contaminated areas. We’re exploring the Mersey Gateway Project, and so can you.

To date, 1.5 million tonnes of material has been excavated and reused on site. This includes material containing hazardous substances, such as hydrocarbons, arsenic and asbestos. If you’re interested in learning about this ambitious project’s approach to contaminated land and the innovative methods being used to treat and reuse material, this visit is ideal for you.

Gain a new perspective on waste and an insight into the unexpected, and sometimes unusual, contamination uncovered in the home of the UK's alkali and chemical industry.



To keep you safe on your visit, please bring safety boots, Hi-Vis trousers and long-sleeved jacket or vest. A hard hat, gloves and protective glasses are also advised. If this isn’t available to you, some PPE will be available on site, but please let us know in advance to avoid disappointment on the day.

A minibus will take you to the site, leaving at 12:30 pm from Forward Point, Tan House Lane, Widnes, Cheshire, WA8 0SL.
