Update Friday 27th August
After requesting an update from Prologis, we have received a response that we are glad to be able to share with you:
‘I am pleased to inform you that the Winding House Lane entrance to Prologis Park Coventry is now fully open and operational.
We are aware that the major fire at the RAM Enterprises' warehouse on Prologis Park Coventry has caused some temporary local disruption and we would like to thank the local community for its continued patience and understanding as we worked with Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service to ensure the area around the damaged building was made safe.’
Wednesday 25th August
On the evening of 19th August a large fire broke out at RAM Enterprises in Prologis Park.
Keresley Parish Council has been in touch with a contact at Prologis regarding this fire in Prologis Park, requesting an update for our parishioners and to raise concerns about the number of HGVs travelling through Keresley via Holbrooks, south of the site to get to the alternative entrance in Bennetts Road.
We can update you with the following information:
Diversion signs are directing traffic around the north of the site along Exhall Road.
Prologis met with the Fire Officer and the demolition contractor employed by RAM Enterprises on the afternoon of Wednesday 26th August 2021.
At this time he fire brigade were extinguishing the last remaining deep seated fire cell and are hopeful to have this extinguished at some point on Thursday 26th August 2021. The fire service will then leave the scene and the estate road from Winding House Lane will be opened and the Bennetts Road closed.
The timings are current best estimates and subject to change.
The good news is that road will not need to remain closed during the demolition and clearance process since this can be done safely within the plot boundary.
Keresley Parish Council wish to thank the emergency services, Prologis and any other contractors involved in bringing the situation under control, keeping everyone safe and minimising impact on the local area.
