Kings Heath Station
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 Kings Heath Station, as well as two other stations along the old Camp Hill line at Hazelwell and Moseley.
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.
Kings Heath Station will sensitive designs informed by detailed studies of the site and Highbury park. The station will be located on the site of its historic counterpart, accessed from land adjacent to Kings Heath High Street.
Plans for Kings Heath have now been submitted, marking significant progress on the project to reopen the Camp Hill line to passenger services.
