National Express will relocate its existing bus and coach maintenance operations in Perry Barr to a new depot on a site nearby, instantly modernising facilities to provide greater capacity, particularly for new electric vehicles joining the fleet. 

Part of large-scale regeneration in the area driven by the Commonwealth Games, to be held in Birmingham in summer 2022, CCS Garage Equipment was appointed to the project following a competitive tender process and will deliver key elements of this purpose-built facility which is designed to provide up-to-the-minute vehicle maintenance, servicing, office and administration spaces for National Express's team.
