Construction firm Galliford Try has won a multi-million pound contract to deliver a new railway station in Wolverhampton.
The company is currently undertaking pre-construction work after being chosen for this phase of a £132M scheme by Wolverhampton Interchange Partnership.
“We are delighted to have been selected as preferred contractor on this significant regeneration project for Wolverhampton,” said Galliford Try area director Simon Courtney.
“We look forward to successfully working with our client and wider stakeholders to provide the local community with an enhanced new station and improved facilities.”
Plans to demolish the existing station were announced in November, with a view to finishing the project in 2019. It will feature a larger concourse, more ticket barriers for better passenger flow and an updated ticket hall.
The Interchange project aims to upgrade Wolverhampton’s city centre and improve the city’s transport links. Work has recently started on a Metro line extension as part of the project, which will include a new stop at the station.
