Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and the West Midlands Rail Executive (WMRE), working with rail industry partners including Network Rail and West Midlands Trains, are leading the development of three new stations to get passenger services resumed on the Camp Hill Line calling at Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell Stations.
Passenger services have been closed on the Camp Hill line since the Second World War. But we are currently developing plans to reopen Hazelwell Station, as well as two other stations along the old Camp Hill line at Mosely and Kings Heath.
Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and the West Midlands Rail Executive (WMRE) have been working with rail industry partners including Network Rail and West Midlands Trains, to lead the development of these three new stations.
The stations represent a significant investment in the local area and will offer better transport choice into central Birmingham, as well as easing congestion along the A435 Alcester Road and surrounding routes. These new stations will provide regular train services into Birmingham New Street, with quick journey times.
Hazelwell Station will be located on the site of its historic counterpart next to Cartland Road. The station will provide local drop off, ticketing and bicycle storage facilities and has been designed to reflect the community and history of Hazelwell.
Plans for Hazelwell and Kings Heath have now been submitted, marking significant progress on the project to reopen the Camp Hill line to passenger services.
