Fresh contractor chosen to create Colchester town square
4:26pm Monday 26th August 2013 in News
A CONTRACTOR is finally set to be appointed to build a long-awaited public square in Colchester town centre.
The public space was due to be built on land near Colchester Town Railway Station by the time the new £25 million magistrates court complex was opened in April last year.
But protracted negotiations with Greater Anglia, which owns the land, and the collapse of the firm originally chosen to carry out the work last year, has led to delays.
Now J Breheny Contractors, based in Ipswich, is set to be given the main contract, believed to be worth around £270,000.
The Town Square, featuring seats, new lighting, cycle racks and public art, will aim to create a positive impression with visitors arriving at the train station.
