Building the new Pineapple Road station is due to start this week.
Contractors VolkerFitzpatrick will begin work on 22nd October for up to 6 weeks. This will enable them to remove some vegetation and trees, as needed, and set up a site compound. Most of the work will take place during standard working hours (Monday to Friday, 7.30am to 5.30pm), but there will be some weekend and night-time works due to safety reasons.
VolkerFitzpatrick will also be setting up the main site compound in Stirchley on the corner of Pineapple Road and Cartland Road. Work to set up the compound will include temporarily widening the King Edward VI School gates and installing temporary cabins and hoarding. Once the new station has been built, the compound will be removed.
Vegetation and tree removal will take place along the railway line, and in the grass area between Pineapple Road and Cartland Road. West Midlands Rail Exec will be working closely with Birmingham City Council to replant trees.
Out of hours work is due to take place along Cartland Road from Saturday 22nd October to Friday 18th November and out of hours work along the railway line is due to take place on
Saturday to Sundays from 22nd October to 27th November.
Works have been have carefully planned out work to reduce disruptions. Measures will be in place to monitor and reduce any noise. Task lighting will be directed away from neighbouring areas.
Traffic management will be in place on Pineapple and Cartland Road during some of these works. Expect noise from machinery and equipment, including excavators and dumpers, road pavers and rollers as well as smaller handheld tools.
