Moor Street Station Upgrades
The vision includes proposals for an ambitious redevelopment to create a station that’s fit for the future, linking seamlessly with Birmingham New Street and HS2 services at Curzon Street.
Proposals for a radical yet respectful transformation of Birmingham Moor Street Station have been put forward by West Midlands Rail Executive, in collaboration with Midlands Connect and other partners.
Passenger numbers are expected to grow to 12 million by 2043 and the current Moor Street Station is not large enough to accommodate this increase. These new plans propose to double the size of the concourse area and introduce two new platforms. A second entrance towards Digbeth is also proposed to support the huge regeneration of the area.
The plans utilise a ‘One Station’ concept that aims to seamlessly integrate Moor Street with the new Curzon Street Station for HS2. This will create a station fit for the future and will complement the spectacular growth of Birmingham City Centre in the years to come.
This initial concept - developed by West Midlands Rail Executive in collaboration with Transport for West Midlands, Midlands Connect, Network Rail, HS2 Ltd, Chiltern Railways, West Midlands Railway and Birmingham City Council – is just the first stage of a long-term plan to transform Moor Street into a world-class station experience at the centre of the West Midlands’ unprecedented regeneration.
