Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said:
“The arrival of the crane on site earlier this week means we are entering into an exciting phase of this project.
“Works are progressing well on the first phase of the railway station programme and people will soon be able to see the new building taking shape as the steels quickly go up.”
Once work on the new station building is completed it will pave the way for the Midland Metro Alliance to begin the final link of the new city centre tram extension. The Midland Metro Alliance are currently delivering the Pipers Row and Railway Drive phases of the extension to the railway station.
Chris Jones, Associate Director, Ion, said:
“The arrival of the crane is a significant milestone and brings the project one step closer to providing enhanced facilities for customers of Wolverhampton Railway Station.”
Wolverhampton Interchange Partnership consists of City of Wolverhampton Council (CWC), Ion, West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA), West Midlands Trains, Virgin Trains, Network Rail, Midland Metro Alliance, Canal & River Trust, and Black Country LEP.
