Birmingham New Street station revamp on track despite delay of towers

Birmingham New Street station revamp on track despite delay of towers

The development of a revamped Birmingham New Street station is still on course, despite part of the original plan for the construction of two towers being held back.

The pair of 30-storey towers formed part of the £600m redevelopment scheme, but the recession has caused revised plans to be submitted to ensure that the station work can go ahead as priority. A decision is said to be made later this week on the application.

Property Week reports that the station, which dates back to the 1960s, is set to undergo a major facelift that will double passenger capacity. It is also expected to generate over £2bn in transport and economic benefits for the region, and create over 10,000 jobs.

A spokesman for the project states that the redevelopment “will see 1960s-built New Street station transformed into a bright, modern, 21st century focal point for Birmingham.”
