Concrete pour for Dudley Metro extension signals continuing progress

A significant concrete pour has taken place on Castle Hill in Dudley for the eagerly awaited Metro extension.

The activity took more than eight hours to complete and with six loads of concrete, equating to 42m3, used for the pour.

It is the second major milestone to be reached for the project in 2022 following the laying of track on one half of the busy thoroughfare earlier in February, signalling a clear sign that the main construction in this area is progressing well.

Continued activity will be present on Castle Hill throughout 2022 as construction switches to the other side of the road later this spring. Anne Shaw, executive director of TfWM, said:

“A lot of hard work has been undertaken here in Dudley to help deliver an interchange scheme that the town deserves, and it is fantastic to see the work for the Metro extension moving forward.

"It is all the more impressive that this activity continues to be safely delivered by the team on site with the challenging circumstances of the pandemic; with so much of the construction activity for this part of the route taking place during lockdowns.”
