Bilston Road Works update
Engineers have now devised a solution consisting of a geo-textile membrane and geogrid to stabilise the ground, in between layers of compacted hardcore and capped with a reinforced 5m wide concrete slab running through the 55m length of the workings. This work is progressing well and we expect that the route into St George's will re-open in March.
Bradley Lane Park and Ride proposal
Consultation has started to identify whether a Park and Ride site at the Midland Metro Bradley Lane stop would have public support. You have until 13th March to record your views here. The results will form part of the planning application being submittted later this year.
Work is continuing on Paradise Circus Development and full details are available at Birmingham Connected. Network West Midlands has details of any bus service changes. From 31 January, Broad Street inbound will be closed to private vehicles from Bridge Street to Paradise Circus. Utilities work for the Centenary Square extension for Midland Metro will start later this year but we will be doing site investigation works during March.

The off street section by Snow Hill One and Two is progressing well. Rails are being installed along this area which will link into the rail already in place at Colmore Circus.
