‘Open for business’ is one of Worcestershire County Council’s main priorities for driving business and economic growth by reducing journey times, improving connectivity and increasing employment opportunities.
To meet this corporate priority, we are investing in exciting new civil engineering schemes throughout the county from building new roads, railway stations through to new bridges, making Worcestershire a fantastic place to live, work, travel through and do business in.
