Carillion wins £75m Anfield stadium job
Carillion has been appointed preferred bidder for Liverpool Football Club's main stand expansion and associated public realm improvements.
Work on the project is expected to start later in 2014, subject to planning consent, and take 20 months to complete. A detailed planning application was submitted to Liverpool City Council in June.
If planning permission is granted, the proposals would see the capacity of a new Main Stand rise by approximately 8,300, taking the overall capacity of Anfield to around 54,000.
Carillion this morning issued a trading statement in which it said work-winning remained strong, with new first-half orders and probable orders worth £2.7bn, which is expected to increase the total value of the company's order book plus probable orders to £18.5bn at the half year.
Shares in Carillion rose 2% to 339p.
