First structure demolished on Brierley Hill Metro extension

Video footage has been released showing the first major structure for the Wednesbury to Brierley Hill Metro extension being demolished in a major step forward for the biggest light rail project in the UK.

The project is developing at pace, even during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the redundant railway bridge in Tipton, located on the disused South Staffordshire Railway line, now removed by the construction team for the much-anticipated route.

A new structure will be built later next year as construction continues to move forward. Structural specialists are also currently hard at work assessing and finalising details for the replacement of existing structures across Sandwell and Dudley.
