Contract Award Win to Deliver High-Profile City Centre Public Realm

Fitzgerald have been awarded a high-profile contract to deliver highways and public realm works for Birmingham City Council which will see our team undertake footway and highway remodelling along Cornwall Street in the heart of Birmingham’s Colmore Business District.

The contract is a key part of Snow Hill Public Realm programme and was awarded through Fitzgerald’s place on Birmingham City Council’s Highways and Infrastructure Works Framework Lot 4. Valued at £1m, the scheme is aimed at improving public transport interchange, connectivity and economic performance.

Key features of the project include Cornwall Street being changed to one-way westbound from New Market Street to Newhall Street. Whilst the most significant aspect of the design is a 3-metre wide carriageway positioned centrally along the street and delineated by new flush granite channels, whilst new footway areas will be provided to both sides of the central carriageway.

An advanced utility contract is in progress and site mobilisation has begun, and works will be undertaken in a live city centre environment with our public liaison management plan underpinning our commitment to delivering a safe and high-quality project.
