Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) has started the search for a design and build contractor for its £14m Dudley Interchange that will link together its bus and tram networks.
The West Midlands Combined Authority has now given the project full business case approval so that tendering can now get underway on the new bus and tram interchange which forms a crucial part of the wider regeneration of Dudley town centre.
Plans are for the interchange to be built on the existing bus station and it will link to the new Metro tram extension currently under construction by the Midland Metro Alliance between the Wednesbury and Brierley Hill areas, with work expected to start in February 2022.
All bids will be evaluated on the basis of 55/35/10 price/quality/social value with the closing date for submissions on 4 June.
TfWM will hold a bidders briefing day at 11am on Thursday 13 May 2021.
All interested parties should register their interest here.
