Birmingham New Street
A bigger, better and brighter station for Birmingham
We’re transforming New Street station into a stunning transport hub for the West Midlands. The project will bring major economic growth by creating new jobs and stimulating regeneration.
The first half of the brand new station opened on Sunday 28 April 2013.
When the project is completed in 2015, the station will be enclosed by a giant atrium, allowing natural light throughout the station and to all 12 refurbished platforms.
The new concourse will be three and a half times bigger giving more space for the 140,000 passengers who use the station every day.
We’re improving accessibility throughout the station with lifts and escalators to every platform:
There will be better pedestrian links to and through the station, with new entrances and a new public square improving connections across the city.
Our plans support the extension of the Midland Metro tram system that will run through the heart of the city, terminating at New Street station.
We know how important it is to reduce the impact of the construction work, so we're delivering your new station in two phases with most of the work taking place behind the scenes.
The station will remain fully operational with services running throughout the work. We will work considerately so that noise and dust is kept to a minimum.
The redevelopment is backed by Birmingham City Council, Advantage West Midlands, Centro and the Department for Transport. It will be delivered by us in partnership with Mace.
