Birmingham City Centre Works

Thursday 20th August saw the track complete on the in-to Birmingham street section of the route. Work is continuing in Bull Street and shortly the out of Birmingham track on the street section of the route will be complete.

Work will then take place to complete the off street section and tie-in to the existing Metro Route. This will mean, for a short while, we will be stopping the trams at St Paul's and when complete we will be using the new Snow Hill stop. 

The grass track area is now complete and the paving is finished in the Snow Hill plaza area. 

The first of the building fixings along the city centre route has been installed in the Colmore Square area. Where we can we will use the eye bolt fixings along the route but in some areas poles will have to be installed to support the overheads. g drawn up for how this will take place and we will publish more details are they become available.
