Simon Courtney, Managing Director for Galliford Try’s Building West Midlands and South West business, said: “It’s great to see Perry Barr receive so much recognition as our team has done a great job transforming the station into a landmark hub that is easily accessible for everyone in the region. I wish all the team the best of luck at the 2023 awards.”

The Rail Business Awards celebrate the best of the UK rail industry and are the first national awards dedicated to the sector in the UK, recognising major projects across a range of aspects such as safety and technical innovation.

Winners will be announced on 23 February 2023 at London Hilton.
