The new one kilometre road will connect Gresty Road with the A500 and has been named Jack Mills Way in honour of the Crewe-based train driver who was the innocent man in charge of the train involved in the 1963 Great Train Robbery. The ceremony was attended by a number of high-profile officials, including Edward Timpson MP and Councillor David Brown, Deputy Leader of Cheshire East Council. Ian Mills, Jack Mills’ grandson, was on-hand to cut the ribbon and officially unveil the road.
The new infrastructure at Crewe Commercial Park represents a significant investment for the Park and the local area as a whole. The site now comprises 55 acres of employment land and six acres of mixed use land. This is in addition to 25 acres of residential land, which is now the subject of a residential planning application by housing developer Taylor Wimpey North West for the whole 25 acre plot.
