We're delighted to announce that Galliford Try have been appointed to deliver a new £10m railway station in Perry Barr, Birmingham.
Significant investment for the Perry Barr area
The new station replaces the current dilapidated facilities as part of a wider £500m regeneration of the Perry Barr area.
It will have new lifts, concourse and booking office as well as improved access. The public realm between the railway station, bus interchange and local shops will also be renewed, with the existing subway to be decommissioned.
Simon Courtney, Managing Director at Galliford Try Building West Midlands, said: “This award follows fast on the heels of our recent success at Wolverhampton Interchange, and we will look to build on our reputation for providing high-quality station solutions to the rail sector.”
Malcolm Holmes, Director of Rail at Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), said: “The new Perry Barr station will be a vast improvement on what was there before and will provide a much better environment for passengers, including the future residents of the thousands of homes currently under construction in the area. It is vital that we have a contractor with Galliford Try’s experience and track record on board for such a landmark project.”
Jonathan Parker, National Framework Manager at Pagabo, said: "We're pleased to see this project awarded after procurement through the first iteration of our Major Works Framework. We established version two of this contract back in April of 2020 which was testament to the success of version one, with a wide range of public sector bodies utilising it during its four year duration. I'm really looking forward to seeing this project as it progresses and seeing the benefits it will bring to the area of Perry Barr."
