Worcestershire Parkway Station has won West Midlands’ top civil engineering project award for 2020.
This was announced at last night’s virtual West Midlands Institute of Civil Engineering (ICE) Awards.
The project, which saw the first new station constructed in Worcestershire in over 100 years, was also awarded the Geotechnical award and the Large Project of the Year award as well as the Best Overall Project Award.
The annual awards ceremony celebrates the best civil engineering projects, as well as highlighting those people who have contributed to promoting civil engineering across the region.
The new station, which opened in February this year, is a key part of Worcestershire County Council’s commitment to improve rail connectivity, enabling easier travel into and out of the county, boosting the regional economy and supporting growing communities.
The station drew praise from ICE judges for overcoming technical challenges through a collaborative approach, engineering expertise, tenacity and determination.
