27/01/2020 - We have recently completed a bold new ‘Lighting Vision’ for Mayfield, a new urban neighbourhood for Manchester located at the former Mayfield railway depot which has lain empty for over thirty years. The project is being delivered by the Mayfield Partnership, a collaboration between developer U+I, LCR, Manchester City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester. The vision celebrates the industrial heritage of this famous former railway depot, whilst creating a highly sustainable environment after dark.
The large public parkland at the heart of the scheme will see a sensitive response in which retained darkness as well as added light will help not only create safe, secure and accessible lighting scheme but also a pleasing ambience and character. The lighting will be carefully controlled to minimise any adverse impact on local flora and fauna, particularly alongside the river Medlock.
