“The formal appointment of our consultancy team and Balfour Beatty as the principal contractor is a significant milestone for Nottingham City Council,” said Matt Hall, national director at Pick Everard.

“Following our involvement in demolition, public realm, and new building work as part of the Broad Marsh element of Nottingham’s Southside regeneration, Pick Everard is building on a successful ongoing relationship with the council. Thus, they will assist in facilitating its programme of citywide improvements.”

Feasibility studies and work to determine the precise location of the proposed structure have already been completed. Thus, they will submit a planning application in the early summer of this year. Government funding was received through the Transforming Cities programme during the design concept stage. Thus, the budget has contributed to the Trent River crossing project momentum.
