SIRFT, Sheffield

 

The Sheffield International Railfreight Terminal (SIRFT) is constructed on the site of the former Tinsley Rail Marshalling Yard.  The total project comprises circa 900,000 sqft of distribution warehousing of which 647,000 sqft is built.

The design includes dedicated rail sidings for the distribution units with provision for loading and offloading to trains directly from the buildings.

Further provision is also made for the buildings to be joined and for rail to run within them if required in the future.
