The Midland Metro (Archive)
Line 1 of the Midland Metro, a 5 million light rail system from Wolverhampton to Snow Hill Station in the city centre, opened in late May 1999. A two mile extension route is planned from Snow Hill, through the City Centre via Upper Bull Street, Corporation Street, Stephenson Street, Pinfold Street, past the Town Hall and on to Broad Street before terminating at Hagley Road, just after the Edgbaston Shopping Centre.
On 14 March 2003, Centro submitted an application to the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for this extension. More information on the progress of this application is available from the links below.
The Midland Metro is promoted jointly by Centro and Birmingham City Council. Its expansion is proceeding in close relationship with a number of major developments in the City Centre.
