Birmingham City Centre Works

After the 'Super September' works shut down the team are back out working hard to complete the Midland Metro project by the end of the year.

Stops are taking shape at Bull Street, Coproration Street and Stephenson Place with the shelter infrastructure going in. Building fixings are nearly complete and we will be putting the wires up towards the end of October. 

Work is progressing on the off-street section and we are preparing for the last major piece of work which is to join the extension to the exisiting route. This work is scheduled to start on the 25th October and will take six weeks. It does mean that trams will not be serving the Snow Hill stop for that period. Replacement buses  from St Paul's are being laid on to enhance the existing bus services and transfer on to rail services at the Jewellery Quarter is also available. More details are available on the service alerts page. 

A recent school visit to the project saw Ivor Goodsite make a welcome appearance along the route. School children from Sandbank School in Walsall came to find out all about the Metro construction and were treated to a visit from Ivor Goodsite and given a walking tour of the city centre extension.
