Work has begun to transform Chapel Street from a traffic-choked highway into a distinctive city high street – a safer and calmer environment for businesses and visitors.
Connecting the University of Salford with both Salford and Manchester City Centres, the area is set to become a vibrant collection of shops, cafés and business premises, as well as providing new houses and apartments across several sites.

Set to become the area’s newest business district, New Bailey is well connected to the rest of the country by road and rail networks.
Work is due to commence soon and will see commercial units, hotels and restaurants occupying the development to provide a hub of activity.
New Bailey will be the new commercial quarter at the heart of the Salford Central development.
Linking with Chapel Street and the historic heart of Salford, the New Bailey location currently consists of vacant land around Salford Central Station and the riverbank opposite Manchester’s successful business district of Spinningfields.
New Bailey will take on its own distinct identity by making the most of its riverside location between important city routes. The area’s historic railway arches will be home to leisure, food and shopping outlets. A new pedestrian footbridge over the River Irwell now connects Salford’s New Bailey to Spinningfields, expanding the region’s commercial centre over the river.
Improvements to Salford Central Station will see increased rail services and the creation of another transport hub for the region.
