Birmingham City Centre Works

Work is progressing well across the city to bring Midland Metro into the city centre by the end of the year. 

Stephenson Street: Rail and sleepers were installed in this area and all the final concrete and surfacing completed. Further track will be installed in the Stephenson Street West area during July and August. Paving works have also started in this area 

Corporation Street: Paving works are ongoing along Corporation Street. The track has now been installed outside House of Fraser and the outbound track is now being laid in the area between Fore Street and Cherry Street. A feature paving ellipse is also being installed across the New Street/Corporation Street junction. 

Bull Street: Work has started on the platform area for the Bull Street Stop and the track is nearly completed around the corner onto Corporation Street. Paving works will also continue during July. 

Off-street section: The paving is now going in around the rail that has already been installed and the grass track area will soon be completed. Preparation works are taking place ready for the tie-in work to the existing route which is scheduled for later this year.
