M5 Oldbury Viaduct Contract Comes to an End
May 2019 will see CRL’s involvement in the M5 Oldbury come to an end, with us completing what has been CRL's largest individual contract and the UK’s largest ever concrete repair contract. The project has thrown up a number of challenges, but there have also been a number of highlights too.
