The Government has finally responded in full to our Conservative-led Council's call for redevelopment of New Street Station by releasing a further £260m of funding. This will enable the project to go full steam ahead to the anticipated finish date of 2011.
The total cost of the project is £598m, £200m of which will come from the private sector. It will double passenger capacity and create an estimated 5,000 new jobs.
All great news for residents and visitors alike. Well done to all who made it happen!
