Britannia starts on 40m Widnes Tesco store

Published:  23 May, 2011

WIDNES: Britannia Construction begins work next month on a 40m Tesco development in Widnes. Local developer Morbaine placed the order with the contractor.

The glass fronted 120 000sqft store will be the biggest supermarket in Widnes and is set to transform the seven acre Ashley retail park. The raised store will be built on columns to allow for a partly covered car park of over 600 spaces, a design that significantly reduces the development's footprint.

John Parle, managing director, Morbaine, said: "All the groundworks and piling will start in five weeks.

"It will be an iconic design with a cafe on the mezzanine floor, overlooking Widnes Waterfront."
