Birmingham City Centre Works

The first of the building fixings along the city centre route has been installed in the Colmore Square area. Where we can we will use the eye bolt fixings along the route but in some areas poles will have to be installed to support the overheads. 

Paving works along the route are continuing and the new ellipse paving feature at the junction of Corporation Street and New Street is beginning to take shape. 

In Stephenson Street we are continuing to install the rail. In the meantime Mace, who are working on the Gateway project, are busy working to complete the screen along the ramp into Grand Central alongside our works on Stephenson Place. 

The stop on Bull Street is beginning to take shape with the shelter going up in the island platform. 

The grass track area is now complete and the paving is finished in the Snow Hill plaza area. Preparation work is underway ready for the tie-in works to the existing Metro route which will be taking place later this year. Plans are being drawn up for how this will take place and we will publish more details are they become available.
