Mott MacDonald investigates a super fibre-optic infrastructure for Walsall

Mott MacDonald has teamed up with consultants from Schema to carry out an in-depth study and produce the business case for developing a fibre optical infrastructure and a platform of new services that deliver Fibre to the Premises. The consultants have been appointed by Walsall Urban Regeneration Company (WRC).

In what would be a UK first, Walsall Urban Regeneration Company (WRC) is looking to establish a multi million pound pilot project that will catapult the town and the region towards the top of the international business league.

With £500 million of physical regeneration underway in Walsall town centre by 2010, WRC has identified the opportunity to embed this revolutionary technology within the fabric of the re-emerging market town and set up a world class research and training centre.

Project spokesman Tom Allen on behalf of Mott MacDonald /Schema said: “We are delighted that WRC has selected our expertise to develop a business plan for this transformational infrastructure. Our brief is to show how the project could be delivered and attract the necessary investment.”

With a number of transformational projects under way and major improvements to the ring road there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lay the foundations for fibre optics which will utterly transform the way we do business and how we use technology in the home,” said WRC director Mohammad Nazir.
