New railway lines and stations have been proposed in the West Midlands and Chilterns route study. The area is set to benefit from the delivery of HS2.
Building the Bordesley Chord would allow key services to access Moor Street station instead of New Street station and provide the potential for new stations at Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell.
In addition, a new connection from the Chiltern main line to the new interchange at Old Oak Common in West London to provide additional capacity and access to HS2, Crossrail and the Great Western main line. This will help relieve the pressure on London Marylebone.
