Brierley Hill extension presented to government

Plans for the £200m extension of the Midland Metro from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill have been handed to the Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling.

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands, and Laura Shoaf, managing director of Transport for West Midlands, formally presented the business case for the new seven-mile extension of the Metro at the House of Commons. The new line from Wednesbury to the new DY5 Enterprise Zone at Brierley Hill would see the Metro run through Great Bridge, Horseley Heath, Dudley Port, Dudley town centre, the Waterfront and Merry Hill, before terminating at Brierley Hill town centre.
