Very happy that Planning permission was granted yesterday for the new station in Moseley, Birmingham.
Very happy that Planning permission was granted today for the new station in Moseley, Birmingham. D5 Architects worked with lead consultant Mott MacDonald on design of the station for Transport for West Midlands and West Midlands Rail Executive. The new station, along with nearby Kings Heath and Hazelhurst stations, also designed by the same team, will reopen the Camp Hill railway line into Birmingham New Street station after being closed to passenger services in 1941.
Councillor Ian Ward, WMCA portfolio holder for transport and leader of Birmingham City Council said: “Rail travel has a major role to play in our efforts to reduce traffic congestion and improve our air quality in Birmingham and this is an important step as we work to reopen the Camp Hill Line to passengers.
“Improved connectivity to the city centre will also draw investment to Moseley, Kings Heath and Stirchley, unlocking opportunities for local people and creating jobs.”
