Over 140,000 passengers use New Street every day, more than double the number it was designed to cater for when it was last fully redeveloped.
Until April 2013, the station was dark, unwelcoming and overcrowded with poor access for passengers. The first section of the new station that has opened provides a fantastic experience for visitors and a great first impression to the city. But we're only half way through our work to completely transform New Street.
We're transforming it into exactly the kind of station passengers deserve and that the people of Birmingham will be proud of.
New Street facts
We're redeveloping the station in the heart of Birmingham's city centre and to date the project team has successfully completed several major elements of work without cancelling a single train service.
