The Cheshire-based company was appointed by Skanska-BAM Nuttall to complete over 4,000 square metres of paving and walling along the new route in phases.
Its 30-strong team will also install new greenery where the new line crosses the River Irwell and a lighting system to enhance the historic Stephenson’s Bridge and other Grade I Listed structures. The contract began this month and is due to complete in 2018.
Managing director Lee Webster said: "The Ordsall Chord is a milestone development for not only Greater Manchester but for the north of England. The landscaping provides a great opportunity to showcase the area’s Victorian railway and historic structures, such as Stephenson’s Bridge, to make this heritage known to future generations."
The contract win follows Hultons’ acquisition of Welsh firm Wright Landscapes at the end of last year which has allowed it to expand its UK presence.
"In the past six months we’ve seen a step change in our growth as a business. As a result we’re increasingly targeting strategic appointments like this, which see us providing large-scale landscaping work for key development sites across the country," Webster said.
The company was a winner in the 2016 BALI Awards in the Employee Excellence Award (turnover over £2.5m) category.
