Embankment is a place with all the right connections; excellently served by all forms of public transport, and just a four minute walk from Victoria station, recently transformed into a major regional transport hub. Getting to and from work couldn’t be easier – and for those who drive, there’s a 442 space covered car park.
As part of a £1.5 billion investment programme in the tram network, Manchester Victoria station now has a handsome new Metrolink stop.
The Ordsall Chord, the centrepiece of the Great North Rail project, is now open to passengers. This new short line will make nearby Victoria station an even more important hub - linking it to Manchester Piccadilly and opening up a new direct service to Manchester Airport. For businesses moving into Embankment, faster and more frequent trains to Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle, Hull and all points North will also strike a positive chord…
