Evesham Editorial 24th Nov, 2020   0

WORCESTERSHIRE Parkway Station has won West Midlands’ top civil engineering project award for 2020 and the West Midlands Institute of Civil Engineering (ICE) Awards.

The project, which saw the first new station constructed in Worcestershire in more than 100 years, was also awarded the Geotechnical award and the Large Project of the Year award as well as the Best Overall Project Award.

The annual awards ceremony celebrates the best civil engineering projects, as well as highlighting those people who have contributed to promoting civil engineering across the region.

The new station, which opened in February this year, is a key part of Worcestershire County Council’s commitment to improve rail connectivity, enabling easier travel into and out of the county, boosting the regional economy and supporting growing communities.




Judges praised station design chiefs for overcoming technical challenges through a collaborative approach, engineering expertise, tenacity and determination.

Worcestershire County Council’s cabinet member for Economy and Infrastructure, Coun Ken Pollock, said:


“Worcestershire Parkway is a culmination of years of hard work and I’m delighted that this fantastic project has been recognised at the ICE West Midlands awards.

“It’s an excellent example of improving connectivity to benefit the community, of which we can be proud.”
