Black Country Framework Contract Win for Fitzgerald

The company have been awarded a key infrastructure scheme by Sandwell Council which involves phase 2 of highway works at Tollhouse Way in Smethwick, West Midlands.

Fitzgerald’s scope of works over the 22-week duration involves the construction of a new cycling route incorporating the realignment of existing kerblines, new drainage, carriageway and footway surfacing, lining and signing.

A new pedestrian toucan crossing will also be installed with renewal of street lighting. Valued at £1.1m, the scheme was awarded through Fitzgerald’s place on Lot 3 of the Black Country Framework for Minor Works.

Site works have recently commenced with key challenges around carrying out our works in a live environment adjacent to Rolfe Street railway station which has high pedestrian footfall. Our team have worked extensively with Sandwell MBC, supply chain partners and stakeholders to develop robust traffic management and phasing plans to mitigate any disruption within the locality.
