Airport Project

As part of the construction of a new £15m link road at Manchester Airport, Johnsons of Whixley has supplied a range  of trees, plants and grasses to the new Enterprise Way at Airport City North, in partnership with landscapers Blue Wigwam. The range included large single and multi-stem trees, ground cover flowering plants and low maintenance grasses.
The construction of the new link road, a part of Airport City North at Manchester Airport, marks a major milestone that will help underpin future development, including the creation of offices, advanced manufacturing units and new hotel beds, creating a total of 11,400 new jobs.
Enterprise Way will connect new development plots to the rest of the landmark site and the wider transport network.
Johnsons of Whixley senior amenity sales manager, Tony Coles, said: “The development at Airport City North is truly exciting, and it’s been a privilege to provide products to Enterprise Way section of the wider project. Working with our partners at Blue Wigwam, we have delivered to an exacting specification and deadline.”
Blue Wigwam director, Richard Hughes, said: “I have worked with Johnsons for the past 17 years, and in the past year they have given me support and a quality of service and product that I can’t get from other tree nurseries. I believe that my loyalties lie with Johnsons of Whixley, and for a good reason – they look after me and my company.”
Johnsons of Whixley is a large commercial nursery businesses, and a supplier of plants and trees to the amenity sector in the UK.
