Worcestershire Parkway

Contractor appointed to deliver Worcestershire Parkway

Worcestershire County Council is forging ahead with its plans for Worcestershire Parkway Regional Interchange Station, with the recent appointment of a specialist rail contractor to deliver the scheme.

Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd, which has over 60 years’ experience as a multi-disciplinary contractor, has been awarded the design and build contract with site preparation and final design work planned for this winter. They will be working alongside SLC Rail, who are project managing the scheme on behalf of the Council.

Government signs off Worcestershire Parkway CPO

The secretary for state has signed off the compulsory purchase order following the withdrawal of objections to the Worcestershire Parkway. The objections were withdrawn when the council and landowners came to an agreement to transfer ownership of the land that the council required to build the station. This marks another step for the project, which is expected to open in the Spring of 2018.
