  • Dedicated Moorside worker rail platforms at Corkickle and Mirehouse.
  • Proposed public platform at Mirehouse.

Moorside Site Railway

Whilst NuGen’s transport strategy is sea and rail-focused, the Moorside Project will have an affect on the road network. NuGen intends to manage this as far as possible to utilise off-peak capacity, but has, at this time, identified the potential for road improvements at a number of locations.
