A bigger, better and brighter station for Birmingham
We’ve transformed Birmingham New Street station into a major transport and shopping hub, stimulating economic growth and regeneration in Britain's second city.The first half of the new station was completed in April 2013 and the full redevelopment opened in September 2015
The new station is enclosed by a giant glass-roofed atrium, allowing natural light to brighten the entire area including all 12 refurbished platforms.
Its spacious new concourse is three and a half times bigger than before. This makes using the station a much easier and more enjoyable experience for the 140,000 passengers who pass through it each day.
We’ve improved accessibility throughout the station with lifts and escalators to every platform:
There are better pedestrian links to and through the station, with new entrances and a new public square improving connections across the city.
And from the end of 2015, the extended Midland Metro tram system 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.
This is the initial statement of public consultation for the project from 2009.
