Engineering jobs part of huge regeneration for inner city areas.

TWO car component firms have expressed an interest in a new business park near Spaghetti Junction.

City jobs and development chief Tahir Ali revealed firms are lining up to look at the new Aston Regional Investment Site, or RIS, near Salford Lake.

He said: "This will be manufacturing business, real engineering jobs."

The city council's Cabinet approved the new Aston, Newtown and Lozells Area Action Plan, of which the RIS is a major part, which could generate 3,000 jobs and pounds 80 million of inward private sector investment.

The plan also includes the regeneration of the Birchfield Road and Perry Barr shopping areas and housing in Newtown
