Birse Civils has won a £16 million contract with Birmingham City Council for the construction of Phase 2 of the Selly Oak New Road, south of Birmingham city centre.
The contract award follows a three year design programme undertaken by Birse Civils working with the Council.
The project involves the construction of 0.8km of new road, including substantial drainage attenuation and a major signalised junction on the A38 Bristol Road.
In addition, the demolition of several buildings, the construction of three new structures spanning the Bourn Brook, a new aqueduct carrying the Worcester & Birmingham Canal, and a new 70m three span rail bridge will be undertaken.
Work is due to commence in June 2009 with completion in Spring 2011.
Birse Civils will be working with sister company Birse Rail for relevant parts of the project. Gifford and Tony Gee and Partners are consulting engineers on the project.
