Four Ashes Ltd is a joint venture which is proposing a new strategic rail freight interchange in the West Midlands – the West Midlands Interchange (WMI) – in response to Government policy identifying the need for greater rail freight provision.
Four Ashes Limited is a three-way partnership led by the specialist rail infrastructure business Kilbride Holdings, and backed by Grosvenor and the majority landowner, Piers Monckton.
The consortium is proposing the development of a new strategic rail freight interchange in South Staffordshire. This is in response to UK Government policy that identifies a need to improve rail freight provision and to create faster, more reliable transport links in the UK.
If approved, the scheme has the potential to benefit the local and national economies by creating more than 8,500 jobs, contributing over £900m to the UK economy and reducing CO2 and nitrous dioxide emissions by transferring goods from road to rail.
