West Midlands Rail Executive in the UK has unveiled designs for the transformation of Birmingham Moor Street station.

The design concept of the station is devised to accommodate future passenger requirements, as well as ensure smooth connectivity with Birmingham New Street and HS2 services at Curzon Street.

The overall plan involves options to increase the size of the concourse from 910m² to 2000m².

It includes the construction of two platforms to increase the capacity of the stations and allow extra services to stop at Birmingham Moor Street.

The plans also include a new transfer deck with access to every Moor Street station platform. It will connect to a footbridge to ensure swift passenger commute to the future HS2 services from Curzon Street.

“According to an estimate, passenger numbers at Moor Street will increase from seven million to 12 million a year by 2043.”

Several other options to enhance pedestrian access to the Moor Street Station are also part of the design concept.

According to an estimate, passenger numbers at Moor Street will increase from seven million to 12 million a year by 2043.

West Midlands Mayor Andy Street said: “This whole area of Birmingham will be revitalised over the next few years as the world’s largest Primark opens, Curzon Street HS2 station is built and Moor Street is transformed.

“This vision for Moor Street will not only provide a better experience for commuters but with two extra platforms, it will set the foundation for the future expansion of rail services.”

West Midlands Rail Executive developed the initial design concepts in collaboration with Transport for West Midlands, Midlands Connect, HS2, Network Rail, Chiltern Railways, West Midlands Railway and Birmingham City Council.

The artists’ impressions were developed by Grimshaw and Glenn Howells Architects.

The release of initial design concepts is the first stage to transform Birmingham Moor Street Station. Further feasibility studies will be carried out to fit the concept into the future Outline Business Case for the redevelopment of the station.
