A £4bn transport plan has been unveiled for transport in the Birmingham area. The plan is not fully funded but the plan looks at opportunities to fund various options.
New Metro lines
- Linking Centenary Square to Edgbaston
- Linking the city centre, Snow Hill station, the new HS2 station at Curzon Street and Digbeth
- Extend this line to Birmingham Airport and the NEC via Bordesley Green and Chelmsley Wood
- Other “potential” lines include along the A34 Walsall Road, the A38 Bristol Road and the A45 to Birmingham Airport
The council also wants to reopen and upgrade rail routes to Moseley, Kings Heath and Sutton Coldfield, with new stations at Fort Parkway and Castle Vale.
