Five New Railway Stations Considered For West Midlands

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Advent.

This is the first paragraph.

Transport authorities in the West Midlands are considering the case for building five new stations at Balsall Heath, Coventry East (Binley), Foleshill, Castle Bromwich and Tettenhall.

The location of the stations is as follows.

Note.

  1. Balsall Heath station would require construction of the Bordesley Chords and extra capacity at Moor Street Station.
  2. Coventry East station will benefit from the opening of High Speed Two, will will allow more local services.
  3. Castle Bromwich station would also benefit from the extra capacity from High Speed Two and the Midland Rail Hub.

Railways in Central Birmingham appear to be having a big sort out.

The article also says this about other stations, being planned in the West Midlands.

These planned new stations will add to expansion of the region’s rail network that is already underway, with new stations being built on the Camp Hill line in south Birmingham at Moseley Village, Kings Heath and Pineapple Road, and on the Walsall to Wolverhampton line serving Darlaston and Willenhall. A new station is also planned at Aldridge, with funding allocated subject to business case. The City of Wolverhampton, South Staffordshire District and Staffordshire County councils have also looked at the case for a new station at Brinsford, which will be considered alongside the case for nearby Tettenhall Station.

In the last part of the article, Andy Street talks about the funding secured.

It certainly looks like station builders in the West Midlands will have lots of work to do.
