Plans to transform Birmingham International Station into a multi-modal transport facility ahead of HS2’s arrival have been published.

The designs suggest how the station on the West Coast Mainline will bring existing rail together with future high speed rail, trams, buses, rapid transit, private vehicles, taxis, bicycles and an automated people mover, with seamless connections to Birmingham Airport, the NEC, HS2 Interchange Station and Birmingham Business Park.

Construction work is programmed to start after the 2022 Commonwealth Games and will completed by 2026 and ahead of HS2’s arrival.

The project is being led by the Urban Growth Company (UGC), the organisation set up by Solihull Council to coordinate and lead infrastructure investment at The UK Central Hub in Solihull.
