Manchester Water Taxis will operate in Salford Quays part of the Manchester Ship Canal. Opened in 1894 to enable the merchants of Manchester to avoid using the Port of Liverpool, this unique inland waterway for “big ships” now unites the great neighbouring cities of Liverpool and Manchester. Under the Peel Ports Group, the international port at the mouth of the River Mersey and the canal which continues maritime navigation from Eastham Lock entrance, 8 miles up river, to Salford Quays 36 miles further east, are promoted individually and as one.

Located at the heart of Salford Quays, MediaCityUK will be the country’s first purpose-built media city.

The BBC will move around 2,500 staff to MediaCityUK during 2011, including five departments currently based in London. The University of Salford have also committed to the development, with a brand new campus for more than 800 students and staff. Ultimately, MediaCityUK will be the natural destination for a whole range of creative and digital businesses.

Centred around a waterfront public realm area twice the size of London’s Trafalgar Square, MediaCityUK will be a destination in its own right, capable of accommodating large scale events for up to 9,000 people.

We are currently working with MediaCityUK’s owners Peel Media to explore the possibility of creating a water taxi service linking the development with Manchester city centre.
