FIVE derelict railway arches in Windsor are set to see a new lease of life as part of a £200m development scheme.

Units 25-26, 27-28, 29-30, 55, and 57 off Alma Road by Windsor and Eton Central station will see a £500,000 investment from the Arch Company, which is the largest landlord of small businesses in the country, as part of project 1000.

This scheme involves investing £200m in order to bring a thousand empty and derelict spaces into use by 2030 and create space for 1,000 businesses, supporting approximately 5,000 jobs and adding to the estimated 25,000 people already employed in arch businesses.
