Access to railway station and car park

Motor vehicles are no longer able to access the station via Railway Drive. Instead, they must access the station, multi storey car park, short stay parking, passenger drop off/pick up area and taxi rank via Corn Hill.

 

Pedestrians can access the station via the footbridge from Pipers Row, while National Cycle Route 81 will be maintained along Railway Drive, although cyclists should take care as construction traffic will be operating in the area.

Work on the new car park has increased capacity from 450 to more than 800 long stay parking spaces.

The old entrance to the multi storey car park has been permanently removed.

The access changes are the first phase of a new look station, with full demolition works on the existing station building to start in spring 2018. The station will remain operational while a new station building is developed.

The new station building will benefit from an enhanced Birmingham New Street style ticket office, larger passenger concourse, ample ticket barriers to ease flow onto and off platforms, and much improved retail and café facilities.

The overall Interchange project will eventually also see a Metro line extension running down Railway Drive to a new stop at the station.
