Birmingham New Street Station, after undergoing a £600m redevelopment programme, is now a state-of-the-art transport hub with a capacity of 52 million passengers per year, it connects to the UK transport networks.

The Metro is already running to Centenary Square and the Edgbaston Village stop is scheduled to open in the summer of 2022.

The roundabout, which runs above the underpass, will remain open throughout the closure as will pedestrian and cyclist access through the Five Ways concourse.
