Four Ashes

We led infrastructure developments to improve access to the Business Park at Four Ashes, South Staffordshire. These were completed in spring 2016.

The site is now ready for major business development by the private developer Bericote Properties.

The 52-acre site provides more than 900,000 square feet of industrial floor space, potentially creating up to 1,080 jobs.

The improvements were backed by the Government’s Local Growth Fund, with £1.91million allocated by the Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Enterprise Partnership.

What has been achieved?

Work started in November 2015 and involved improving Gravelly Way off the A449 – which was too narrow with no lighting or pavements. The team then worked to reconstruct and widen the road, build new pavements and install lighting to provide safe and suitable access to industrial traffic.

Gestamp, one of Europe’s leading manufacturer of metal autoparts for the automotive industry, will relocate from its current site onto a 550,000 sq ft plot on Four Ashes – demonstrating strong investor confidence in Staffordshire and UK economy.

Phase 2

Phase 2 enabling works started in November 2016, undertaking diversion of WPD electricity and BT telephone equipment.

The main scheme commenced on 1st March 2017 and took approximately 8 months to complete.

Phase 2 comprised:

  • Upgrading the existing crossroads to a traffic signal controlled junction with right turn lanes into Gravelly Way and Crateford Lane
  • Providing pedestrian and cycle route provision and toucan crossings to facilitate movements across the A449
  • Improve safety and reduce community severance
