Balfour Beatty to extend Midland Metro

Balfour Beatty has been appointed to extend the Midland Metro through Birmingham’s city centre.

The project involves delivering a 1.4km extension linking Birmingham’s two major rail stations, delivering more than 3.5 million passengers a year to the city’s retail quarter for Centro, the region’s transport authority.

Balfour Beatty has responsibility for designing, constructing, testing and commissioning the new £18.6m tramway.
