Centro in partnership with Birmingham City Council (BCC) is undertaking the Eastside Metro Tram Extension project through the heart of the Digbeth area of Birmingham, the UK.
The project involves the construction of a 1.5km metro tram which will start from HS2 station at Curzon Street to New Canal Street, Meriden Street and Adderley Street.
The project includes the construction of new tracks, new tram stops, maintenance depot, road resurfacing works and related facilities, and the installation of safety systems.
In October 2014, Centro and BCC announced the design plans for two options of the project and invited public to comment on the plans.
Following the public consultancy meeting, a tram route from Bull Street in the city center to the proposed HS2 station at Curzon Street was agreed but the plans were further extended into Digbeth as the Centro received extra funding from the government.
Again a public consultancy meeting was announced on the two possible routes that would link New Canal Street with a proposed terminus and multi-storey car park at Adderley Street with the deadline for comments on October 31, 2014.
The two options were:
The route follows Fazeley Street before turning onto Liverpool Street. It includes a stop close to the junction with Great Barr Street and Heath Mill Lane. Trams would then continue along Liverpool Street before turning into Adderley Street.
It is 1.5km long and runs along New Canal Street and Meriden Street before turning left onto High Street Deritend. It will then run along the center of the carriageway with a stop close to the junction of Milk Street to serve Digbeth Coach Station and the Custard Factory and then turns left into Adderley Street.
In March 2015, Option 2 was finalized.
In November 2015, Central Government commits US$147 million for the development.
Planning activities are underway. Construction works are expected to commence in 2019 and scheduled to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2023.
