A45 Corridor works at Birmingham Airport

Thomas Bow City Asphalt are pleased to continue their work at Birmingham Airport, having recently completed the remodelling of the long stay Car Park, with the latest project on the A45 Corridor. The busy site, at the junction of A45 and Damson Parkway is adjacent to the main goods entrance to the Airport and just round the corner from the Jaguar Land Rover facility at Solihull. Being such an important junction to these key facilities demands precise traffic management and a carefully executed programme to minimised disruption.

The project, associated with the runway extensions to Birmingham Airport, involves the resurfacing of the junction, creation of a shared cycleway and footpath, along with a new Toucan crossing over the busy dual carriageway.

The project, led by Contracts Manager Brian White sees six weeks of civil engineering work followed by two and a half weeks of surfacing with day and night works.

Nottingham & Derby City Councils’ Joint Highway Framework 2013-2017

TBCA are the preferred contractors for a £125m framework spanning Nottingham, Derby, and possibly many MHA members.

We are incredibly proud to announce that Thomas Bow City Asphalt have not only won a placement on the Nottingham and Derby City Councils’ Joint Highway Framework, but are the preferred contractors for surfacing and major highway works for this £125m framework.

£25m of the framework has the potential to allow us to work with many other members of the Midland Highway Alliance which includes authorities such as Staffordshire, Rutland, and Milton Keynes councils.

Alistair Bow, Managing Director of Thomas Bow commented: “It is great to retain work for Nottingham City Council and we are also glad to bring our experience over to Derby City Council after working for Derbyshire County Council for so many years.”

Thomas Bow has already begun work on a £16.2m upgrade to the A6514 Ring Road aiming to reduce congestion and improve reliability. This represents a massive contribution from the Department for Transport and the council themselves. This major improvement scheme is something we are excited to be part of as a local contractor.

The joint framework is scheduled to run from 2013-2017.
