Eastside Birmingham City Centre

Moor Street Queensway

Ends: Ongoing

Last updated: 25 April 2024

What’s happening?

The Eastside of Birmingham City Centre is set to be transformed through a multimillion pound regeneration project, led by Birmingham City Council, to improve housing, office and leisure space. 

With the extension of the metro line, the opening of HS2 Curzon Street Station and the introduction of new Sprint routes, the area will be one of the most connected parts of city and become a better area to live, work, study and visit.

Whist work takes place, you may experience disruption to your journey. There will be changes to the way you travel to and from some parts of the city centre. Please plan ahead and  remember to check your journey regularly

Please check back regularly for the most up-to-date information.

What's happening?

The work on the much-anticipated Birmingham Eastside Metro Extension has progressed significantly since spades hit the ground in 2020, with main construction activity in Lower Bull Street and Digbeth High Street now completed.

The scheme will progress from Sunday 7 April 2024 when track works will get underway in Moor Street Queensway, Birmingham. These works are expected to last until approximately Autumn 2024.

Rest assured these works will not impact your journey if you usually use the existing tram line. However, there is disruption due to works in Wednesbury which may affect your journey. To find out more information about that disruption click here.

Travel Tips

You will still be able to get to where you need to go, but consider the following:

The key travel advice is as follows:

If you usually get on or off your bus by Moor Street Station, New Street Station, or Priory Queensway; your bus route is still operating and you are still able to get it, close to where you usually do. However, the stop you need to get on and off at may have changed.

Some bus stops will be temporarily relocated until Moor Street Queensway works are complete; use the updated city centre bus stop map to see where your new stop is.

Your bus stop may have changed so plan ahead; check your journey in both directions of travel.

• Familiarise yourself with the changes to your stop; another route/stop might suit your destination better.

• Put your safety first - much of Moor Street Queensway will be a construction site, for your own safety use the designated walking routes to get to your destination. These are signposted clearly.
