Renewed calls for Birmingham Airport Expansion & Second Runway
 
04:58
Business leaders in the West Midlands have renewed calls for expansion at Birmingham Airport to be the focus of future of aviation strategy in the UK. Transport Secretary Chris Grayling today gave the go-ahead for a new north west runway at Heathrow, with MPs expected to vote on the proposals late next year or early in 2018. However, Mr Grayling made no reference to Birmingham in his statement. Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce chief executive Paul Faulkner said Birmingham is the answer to growing national demand. Mr Faulkner said: We believe that Birmingham Airport remains ideally placed to service this growing demand. Once HS2 is complete, Birmingham will sit at the heart of a world-class transport network connecting eight of 10 of Britain’s largest cities. Expansion at Birmingham Airport could benefit the nation as well as pushing the accelerator on the growth of the Midlands Engine. We hope to see Birmingham Airport continue to push ahead with exploring options for growth and expansion and Government backing of their proposals in due course. Bham council leader John Clancy says must now develop plans to grow Bham Airport after govt decided to address congestion at London airports. 25th October 2016

Birmingham Airport 2nd Runway in Long Term Plans

Birmingham Airport Welcomes the Airports Commission's Recognition of its Role in the UK's Long-Term Aviation Strategy 17 December 2013 The Davies Commission report has welcomed Birmingham Airport's long-term vision and affirmed the importance of the Airport in the UK's long-term aviation strategy. The Davies Commission made key points that will support the future growth of the Airport:- • Potential building for a second-runway as a long-term option. • Rejection of a dominant hub-airport model as the only answer for Britain's aviation needs. • Making the most of Birmingham's capacity in the medium-term. • The impact of HS2 on the airport's future development. Commenting on the report Paul Kehoe, CEO of Birmingham Airport, said: "Our hard work has paid off. Birmingham Airport has today been recognised as an integral piece of the long-term aviation puzzle, supporting the growth of aviation links across the UK, which is a positive step forward for the Midlands economy. "And whatever the long-term solution, the Commission has also recognised that Birmingham Airport can grow immediately and we will work with the Government on the policy recommendations set out in this report in order to deliver this. "We will continue to work alongside our stakeholders to ensure Birmingham Airport delivers for local businesses, passengers and the economy." However, concerns remain that the report does not address the whole British economy. "Despite the stated remit of the Commission to take a "UK wide perspective", the Interim Report focuses disproportionately on the South East further entrenching the dominance of the South East economy to the detriment of the growth of the rest of the UK." http://www.birminghamairport.co.uk/meta/news/2013/12/bhx-welcomes-airport-commission-interim-report.aspx

Birmingham Airport Second Runway
 
04:05
Birmingham Airport, together with a coalition of business leaders have unveiled a vision that would enable the Airport to grow in line with future demand, boosting global connectivity and creating over a quarter of a million new jobs in the Midlands, helping to rebalance the UK economy. This vision supports growth of up to 70 million passengers each year and up to 500,000 air transport movements from an expanded facility. The Airport's vision supports the development of a business park for the Midland's manufacturing sector alongside the expanded site, and one of Europe's biggest conference centres at the NEC, all based at the cross-roads of Britain's road and rail system. A map describing the lay-out of the area for potential future growth can be found by visiting www.balancedaviationdebate.com or clicking here.

Birmingham Airport Integrated with HS2 could give supersonic boost
 
03:45
Sir Howard Davies, chairman of the Airports Commission, says the HS2 high speed rail line boosts the case for a second runway at Birmingham Airport. Birmingham Airport has huge potential and the ability to open up access to key international markets for thousands of the region’s businesses, and will be significantly bolstered by HS2 bringing 35 million people within two hours’ travel. John Clancy, leader of Birmingham city council,: “The government has made a decision on resolving congestion at London’s airports. As a region, we must now develop our own plans for Birmingham Airport and HS2, to connect the West Midlands to global opportunities. “In ten years’ time, Birmingham is going to be the first and only UK airport with a high speed train service on the doorstep, and travel times linking Birmingham and London will be around 40 minutes. Liberal Democrat candidate for 'metro mayor' in the West Midlands Combined Authority, "By integrating the HS2 interchange station into the airport, aligning it with runway 2 and ensuring it is linked to the rest of the airport, road and rail infrastructure," she says "we can offer a transformative solution for both the Midlands and the rest of the country." Andy Street, Conservative candidate to be the first West Midlands mayor said: Businesses across the region are very clear on their desire for an expanded Birmingham airport. Labour mayoral candidate Sion Simon supports an expanded Birmingham Airport.

Birmingham's Paradise Circus Redevelopment Plans Start
 
02:39
A redevelopment plan that will lead to the closure of roads in Birmingham city centre has got under way. The work - part of a £500m Paradise Circus redevelopment - will affect Summer Row between Lionel Street and Great Charles Street, which will be closed temporarily to all vehicles. Parking on Summer Row will also be suspended. The city council said drivers should expect "significant disruption". The work is part of a project to demolish the old library and create new offices, shops and walkways. Earlier, the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce welcomed the work and said businesses would cope with the disruption. The contractors said the work would last for approximately 18 months. The project is expected to be completed in 2025 and could create up to 15,000 jobs, the council said. 5th January 2015

Chinese plan HS2 link for disused Victorian rail; The Whitacre Link
 
03:46
Chinese plan HS2 link for disused Victorian rail line 9 January 2014 The planned railway would link to HS2 and Birmingham Airport. A Chinese state-owned business has approached Birmingham City Council about reopening an old railway line. Under the plans, the Stonebridge Railway in Warwickshire would link to the HS2 Birmingham Interchange station, with connections to Birmingham Airport. The council confirmed it had received a letter from the China Railway Group interested in designing, constructing and financing the project. Transport group Centro called the plans "interesting". 'Long-term investments' Under the plans, the 11.7 kilometres (7.3 miles) link would run from Hampton-in-Arden, near Solihull to Whitacre Junction, in North Warwickshire, with links to Birmingham International Station and the National Exhibition Centre. Continue reading the main story What was the Stonebridge Railway? The Stonebridge Railway was opened in 1839 It ran from Whitacre, in Warwickshire, to Hampton-in-Arden The line closed in the 1930s Rail experts believe it would cost an estimated £240 million to restore the line, or £280 million with full electrification. Birmingham City Council said the China Railway Group, the main construction company for China's railways, had sent it a letter in December, expressing its interest in backing the scheme. The letter said: "We write to express our formal interest in making long-term investments in the region, including the development and enhancement of Birmingham Airport, and in the development of the railways of the region to connect with the proposed HS2 High Speed line." Transport Minister Stephen Hammond has said he will look at the proposals. Geoff Inskip, Centro chief executive, said: "This is an interesting proposal and more work is needed to understand exactly how it could improve access to HS2 and Birmingham Airport and deliver improved, direct journeys to and from the West Midlands.." A Birmingham City Council spokesperson confirmed they had been contacted by the railway group and said: "We are always keen to hear of any proposals that could improve connectivity and transport infrastructure in the city." A Department for Transport spokesman said: "We would be interested in seeing a detailed business case to support this scheme." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-25664983

A quick visit to Birmingham Airport | 13/02/18
 
04:11
Not a very long video at all as we were only here for around 15 minutes on Tuesday 13th February 2018, it was raining and very cold, so we will come back here in the summer when it is warm, however we got out target which was to catch the Emirates A380 taking off. Birmingham Airport info: Birmingham Airport (IATA: BHX, ICAO: EGBB), formerly Birmingham International Airport and before that, Elmdon Airport is an international airport located 5.5 nautical miles (10.2 km; 6.3 mi) east southeast of Birmingham city centre, at Bickenhill in Solihull, England. It has a CAA Public Use Aerodrome Licence (Number P451) that allows flights for the public transport of passengers or for flying instruction. Passenger throughput in 2016 was over 11.6 million, making Birmingham the seventh busiest UK airport. The airport offers both domestic flights within the UK and international flights to destinations in Europe, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent, North America and the Caribbean. Birmingham Airport is an operating base for BMI Regional, Flybe, Jet2.com, Ryanair, Thomas Cook Airlines and TUI Airways. From May 2018 the airport will become a new long haul base for Primera Air. Location: Birmingham Airport is 5.5 NM (10.2 km; 6.3 mi) east-south-east of Birmingham city centre, in the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull. It is bordered by the National Exhibition Centre to the east, Marston Green to the north, Sheldon to the west, the village of Bickenhill to the south, and the village of Elmdon to the south west. It is primarily served by the A45 main road, and is near Junction 6 of the M42 motorway. It is connected by the elevated AirRail Link with Birmingham International railway station on the West Coast Main Line. The airport's location south-east of the city, plus the only operational runway being north-west – south-east (15/33), means that depending on wind direction, aircraft land or take-off directly over Birmingham. The relatively short north-east – south-west runway (06/24) is not operational, and has been incorporated into the taxiway for aircraft departing the end of runway 33, or gaining access to runway 15. History: 1920-1939 In 1928, the Birmingham City Council decided that the city required a municipal airport.[citation needed] Plans were submitted in 1933, identifying Elmdon as the site for the airport, delayed by the Great Depression. On 8 July 1939 the Duchess of Kent, Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark opened Elmdon Airport.[6] The airport was owned and operated by Birmingham City Council. Initial services flew to Croydon, Glasgow, Liverpool, Ryde, Shoreham, Manchester and Southampton. World War II During World War II the airport was requisitioned by the Air Ministry and was used by the RAF and the Royal Navy as RAF Elmdon, an Elementary Flying School and a base for the Fleet Air Arm. During this time, the original grass strip was replaced by two hard runways: 06/24 at 2,469 feet (753 m) and 15/33 at 4,170 feet (1,271 m). Avro Lancaster and Stirling bombers manufactured at the Austin Aero Company's shadow factory at Cofton Hackett could not take off from the short runways at Longbridge. Instead they were transported by road, minus the wings that would be attached at Elmdon. They were test flown from the aerodrome, and once declared airworthy they were flown to their operational units. On 8 July 1948, the aerodrome returned to civilian use, though still under government control. 1950-2000 During the post-war years, public events, such as air fairs and air races were held on the site. In 1961, an additional terminal building to handle international traffic was opened, called The International Building. The main runway was extended to 7,400 feet (1.4 miles) to allow jet operations, including introducing VC-10 services to New York in 1967. 1984 saw the opening of the Maglev rail link train between the airport terminal and nearby railway station. The Maglev rail link was shut down in 1995 after 11 years, following a string of breakdowns. The Government limited public sector borrowing applied in 1993. This meant that the airport could only expand by using private sector finance. 51% of the local council shares were sold to restructure the airport into a private sector company, enabling a £260 million restructuring programme to begin in 1997. 2001-2009 On 20 October 2003, the Concorde made her final visit to Birmingham Airport on as part of her farewell tour. In June 2006, a new turnoff from the main runway was completed and saw an improvement in traffic rates on southerly operations, where the only available option for landing traffic had been to travel to the end of the runway to exit. The airport published a master plan for its development up to 2030 in November 2007, called "Towards 2030: Planning a Sustainable Future for Air Transport in the Midlands". This sets out details of changes to the terminals, airfield layout and off-site infrastructure.

Midlands’ 20 Year Transport Plan Approved
 
02:27
Transport chiefs today (Thursday December 17) approved a long-term strategic transport plan to help the West Midlands unlock its full economic potential. Movement for Growth, which follows a three month public consultation by the West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority (ITA), sets out the region’s transport strategy for the next 20 years. It includes a fully integrated train, bus and rapid transit system, strategic road and rail improvements and a comprehensive cycle network, all underpinned by smart technology including ticketless travel and real time information. Cllr Roger Lawrence, chair of the ITA, said: “I would like to thank those individuals, businesses and organisations who provided such valuable feedback during the consultation. “Their views have helped shape a clear and agreed strategy for the West Midlands – one that will give us the transport system we need for sustained economic growth, new jobs and clean air. “Movement for Growth will be the transport strategy for the forthcoming West Midlands Combined Authority and the region will be speaking with one voice in support of it. We have a clear path to follow so now is the time to move forward and deliver these schemes.” Cllr Lawrence said a key aim of the plan was to help the West Midlands unlock the full economic potential of the HS2 high speed rail line which will link Birmingham to London in 2026 and later to Manchester and Leeds. Movement for Growth sets out the transport infrastructure needed to best feed and connect into HS2 including enhanced rail and tram links and a bus rapid transit system called Sprint using high capacity tram-style vehicles. The plan also seeks to help power the Government’s vision of a ‘Midlands Engine’ that can drive growth and jobs across the whole of the Midlands, helping to rebalance the UK economy. Today’s approval for the plan follows last month’s announcement by Government of a 10-year £8 billion devolution deal for the emerging West Midlands Combined Authority. This includes funding for transport schemes including an expansion of the Metro tram system with a new east-west route from Brierley Hill to the HS2 Curzon station in Birmingham city centre and on to Birmingham Airport and the nearby HS2 Interchange Station. The Wednesbury to Brierley Hill tram extension was a key recommendation of the recent Black Country Rapid Transit Review which has also helped shaped Movement for Growth. The Review took a fresh look at what sort of rapid transit network was needed to best connect the area’s key towns and cities with each other and Birmingham. The Review, which followed a request from the Association of Black Country Authorities, put forward a mix of Midland Metro tram routes, Sprint services and innovative tram/train technology similar to that being used in a pilot scheme unveiled last week in Sheffield. Infrastructure projects set out in Movement for Growth include schemes benefitting: Birmingham Extending the Midland Metro tram system from the city centre, through east Birmingham to the airport, connecting the region’s two high speed rail stations Fast, limited-stop Sprint services along the city’s main roads Improved road junctions at traffic jam hot spots New cycle routes linking to a metropolitan-wide strategic cycle network New suburban rail lines and stations for northern suburbs like Castle Vale and Castle Bromwich and Moseley and Kings Heath in the south Coventry Sprint rapid transit network Improvements to bottleneck road junctions New cycle routes linking to a metropolitan-wide strategic cycle network 17 December 2015

Commission Shows Expansion Plans For Airports
 
03:36
New runways at Heathrow and Gatwick are among the options that have been short-listed by the Airports Commission for expanding UK airport capacity. The three short-listed options include adding a third runway at Heathrow, lengthening an existing runway at Heathrow, and a new runway at Gatwick. The commission, led by businessman Sir Howard Davies, will also consider a new airport in the Isle of Grain in north Kent. A final report is due by summer 2015. The commission has not shortlisted proposals for expanding Stansted or Birmingham, but said there was likely to be a case for considering them as "potential options" for any second new runway by 2050. Sir Howard was asked in 2012 to investigate the options for expanding the UK's aviation capacity and try to come up with a plan. He said the Commission's analysis showed one net additional runway was needed by 2030. "The capacity challenge is not yet critical, but it will become so if no action is taken soon," he added. The Commission has short-listed the following proposals to investigate ahead of its final report: A new runway at Gatwick Airport more than 3,000m in length A new 3,500m runway at Heathrow Airport constructed to the north-west of the existing airport An extension of Heathrow's existing northern runway to the west to at least 6,000m, enabling it to be used for both take-offs and landings The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has said that putting a new runway at Heathrow would be a "catastrophe". Following the commission's report, Mr Johnson said he continued to support the creation of the Isle of Grain airport in north Kent. "A new airport in the inner estuary is the only credible hub option left. By keeping it on the table, Davies is saying you have a choice - between a damaging U-turn or a radical new vision for expansion," he said. In its report, the Commission calculates an Isle of Grain airport would cost up to £112bn - around five times that of its three short-listed options. However, it said it would look at it in the first half of 2014, to reach a view on whether the option offered "a credible proposal". "The overall balance of economic impacts would be uncertain - particularly as an Estuary airport would require the closure of Heathrow for commercial reasons and London City for airspace reasons," it says. Meanwhile, supporters of Heathrow's expansion say it will be quicker and cheaper than other options and will help to maintain the UK as an international aviation hub. Heathrow's owners submitted evidence to the commission arguing that a new runway could be in place by 2029, allowing 260,000 more flights. Colin Matthews, Heathrow chief executive, told the BBC: "The case for Heathrow is strong. It's important that businesses can get around the globe to where economies are growing. "We've got Paris and Amsterdam, Frankfurt desperately trying to eat our lunch, they want to have the business that the UK benefits from today." John Cridland, head of business lobby group the CBI, said that urgent action was needed from the government when the commission's final recommendations were made in 2015. "It is no longer acceptable to bury our heads in the sand on this," he added. Heathrow is one of the world's busiest hub airports, handling 70 million passengers in 2012.

Birmingham Airport CEO confident on second runway

Birmingham Airport Welcomes the Airports Commission's Recognition of its Role in the UK's Long-Term Aviation Strategy 17 December 2013 The Davies Commission report has welcomed Birmingham Airport's long-term vision and affirmed the importance of the Airport in the UK's long-term aviation strategy. The Davies Commission made key points that will support the future growth of the Airport:- • Potential building for a second-runway as a long-term option. • Rejection of a dominant hub-airport model as the only answer for Britain's aviation needs. • Making the most of Birmingham's capacity in the medium-term. • The impact of HS2 on the airport's future development. Commenting on the report Paul Kehoe, CEO of Birmingham Airport, said: "Our hard work has paid off. Birmingham Airport has today been recognised as an integral piece of the long-term aviation puzzle, supporting the growth of aviation links across the UK, which is a positive step forward for the Midlands economy. "And whatever the long-term solution, the Commission has also recognised that Birmingham Airport can grow immediately and we will work with the Government on the policy recommendations set out in this report in order to deliver this. "We will continue to work alongside our stakeholders to ensure Birmingham Airport delivers for local businesses, passengers and the economy." However, concerns remain that the report does not address the whole British economy. "Despite the stated remit of the Commission to take a "UK wide perspective", the Interim Report focuses disproportionately on the South East further entrenching the dominance of the South East economy to the detriment of the growth of the rest of the UK." http://www.birminghamairport.co.uk/meta/news/2013/12/bhx-welcomes-airport-commission-interim-report.aspx

Birmingham Airport Boosting Midlands International Tourism
 
04:16
The region is attracting an increasing number of visitors from the Far East. Birmingham left London in the shade in the tourism stakes in 2014 with a record 32 per cent increase in visitors – as millions flocked to the second city from the US and China. The city welcomed unprecedented tourist numbers in the last 12 months with a total of 34 million visitors spending more than £5 billion, according to Marketing Birmingham. The influx saw Birmingham’s tourist and business visitors grow by a record 32 per cent compared to London’s growth of just 8.9 per cent, said the agency. 21 07 2015

East & West Midlands unite for stronger transport investment
 
02:45
Economic study assessing where connectivity improvements are likely to have greatest long-term impact on employment and the economy A new group has been formed to champion strategic transport investment across the East and West Midlands. Midlands Connect is a collaboration of Midlands-wide local enterprise partnerships, Network Rail, the Highways Agency, local authorities and the business community. A major economic study, the first phase of Midlands Connect, is examining and assessing where connectivity improvements are likely to have the greatest long-term impact on employment and the economy. Coun Roger Lawrence, chairman of the West Midlands Integrated Transport Authority which formally approved the launch of Midlands Connect, said working as one body in identifying areas for investment to then maximise growth potential would be key. "It is only with a clear and unified voice that the Midlands can really punch its weight and realise its true potential," he said. "By talking to businesses and pulling together growth plans from the local enterprise partnerships we can create an integrated scheme that serves economic need and is supported by good transport. "HS2 may be some years away but it is going to be a game-changer for this region. We have to get connectivity to it planned in advance so that we can maximise economic growth and our ability to move around." The economic study launched by Midlands Connect is due to conclude in July and the group has already begun to seek funding from the Government and other sources. Once up and running, it will then focus on developing an integrated plan for improved connectivity to HS2, addressing east-west Midlands connections and capacity for freight movements plus improving international connectivity via the region's airports. Andrew Cleaves, chairman of the West Midlands Cross-Local Enterprises Transport Group, said: "These are early days but already there is a consensus across the entire region that working together on improving our transport infrastructure is far more effective than as individual bodies. "Economic progress is not governed by municipal boundaries - developments at somewhere like Birmingham Airport or on the M1 can have an impact all over the Midlands, so we need to capture that and use it to our advantage." The plans were confirmed at a breakfast meeting at Birmingham Airport on Thursday, June 26, when business leaders from across the region came together to discuss the way ahead. 26 June 2014

Utilise Birmingham Airport & Release pressure from overheated Heathrow
 
04:42
Birmingham's business leaders have said they are "disappointed" after a long-awaited inquiry into the future of Britain's airports called for a third runway to be built at Heathrow. Paul Kehoe, chief executive of Birmingham Airport, urged the Government to "move ahead with caution" in response to the Airports Commission's recommendations. The airport had opposed expansion at Heathrow and called on the Government to back a strategic network of long-haul airports throughout the UK instead. Mr Kehoe said: "Given the significant levels of growth we have seen at Birmingham Airport within this period, especially in long-haul routes, we urge the Government to move ahead with caution so as not to damage the ability of regional airports to grow. "The Midlands is a powerful engine of growth at the heart of our country and needs direct aviation to succeed. "With our £200 million investment in the airport, including our runway extension allowing for this summer's extended series of direct flights to Beijing, we are doing all we can to support the region's businesses and leisure passengers. "Whilst the Government continues to review all the evidence before it, Birmingham Airport looks forward to continuing the expansion of our long-haul offering in support of the region's economy." 5 July 2015

Prime Minister: HS2 will allow Birmingham Airport to London travel in 30 minutes
 
01:24
During the visit, Mr Cameron also met with local business leaders from across the region, who welcome greater connectivity from their local airport. The longer runway will allow aircraft to fly to destinations further away and support more direct long-haul flights to emerging economies currently out of reach, such as Brazil and China, as well as tourist hotspots like the West Coast of the USA. The runway expansion is just one part of a long-term investment programme, worth over £300 million at the airport. The earlier stages have already delivered a new combined terminal, a new maintenance hangar for larger aircraft and a state-of-the-art air traffic control tower. The airport development has been funded through private sector investment, and will support the airport's long term ambition of quadrupling the annual number of passengers to 36 million.

The future of flight - Birmingham Airport
 
06:34
"Regional airports are part of an integrated transport solution," said Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport's chief executive. Virgin Trains believes some engineering work around Coventry would, within a couple of years, make it possible for a passenger to get to Euston in about 50 minutes. This would bring Birmingham as close to the heart of London as Stansted, which is 45 minutes away from Liverpool Street. A journey will take about 15 minutes longer than coming into the capital than from Gatwick and half an hour more than the Heathrow Express. One option is persuading people that it is worthwhile to "fly the train", which would see the train ticket being included as part of the air fare. This is common practice in Germany, where passengers flying to Frankfurt pick up a high-speed train to nearby cities such as Cologne. Virgin Atlantic throws in a ticket on the Heathrow or Gatwick Express for its business class passengers. Such initiatives would cement Birmingham's place as a major airport which, if not a rival to Heathrow, could at least be a viable alternative. The Boeing 787 and Airbus A350 will, some believe, generate more point-to-point routes and render the hub approach less relevant. “The next 20 years are going to see another 100 million passengers. Even with more runways, the south-east won’t cope – and who’s to say that BA will be the dominant carrier, given the Middle East growth?” says Paul Kehoe, Birmingham Airport chief executive. “If we are saying the world’s sixth largest economy [according to the Centre for Economics and Business Research in 2012] can only have one major airport, that’s a very poor state of affairs.” Declan Curry looks at the future of flight with Robin Southwell, UK president of plane maker Airbus, Christian Schindler UK director at the German airline Lufthansa and racing for the stars Karin Nilsdotter, chief executive of Spaceport Sweden. We also hear from the boss of Birmingham Airport, Paul Kehoe and travel expert Simon Calder. 17 08 2014

Birmingham named as HS2 headquarters
 
03:31
The headquarters for construction of the High Speed 2 (HS2) rail line is to be based in Birmingham. HS2 Ltd, the company responsible for the project, said its new premises would house up to 1,500 staff. It is expected to include engineers and designers responsible for track, signalling and station plans, as well as support staff. While some jobs would move from London, the company said, many would be new roles. Chairman David Higgins said he expected the first staff to move into the new premises in April or May 2015. He said the fact HS2 had chosen to base its construction HQ in Birmingham rather than London showed the firm's "long-term commitment" to the city. Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said it would bring skilled job opportunities to the area. Birmingham City Council announced it would create a company to lead the redevelopment around Curzon Street station, which will become the Birmingham hub for the first phase of HS2. In February, the council first announced plans to regenerate the area by building offices, a hotel and about 2,000 homes to both improve the city's "welcome" to HS2 travellers and stimulate the local economy. Under the plans, the Grade I-listed facade of the currently derelict station would form the centrepiece of the new development, extending into nearby Digbeth and the surrounding area. Continue reading the main story Curzon Street development 366,000 sq m of office space 98,000 sq m of retail 57,000 sq m of hotel accommodation 79,000 sq m of community and leisure related uses 167,000 sq m of residential accommodation (including student accommodation) Source: Birmingham City Council When it is completed, the new station will be the biggest building in Birmingham, according to the city council. Council leader Sir Albert Bore, said: "Since the industrial revolution, Birmingham has been a national capital for engineering, so it is only natural that the HS2 construction HQ be based in Birmingham." Mr Mcloughlin said he hoped Curzon Street would repeat the "success" of London's King's Cross and St Pancras stations. "If you think what those areas were like 20 years ago and what they're like today, I want to see that emulated in Birmingham," he said. 21 07 14

£250m motorway boost for Birmingham Airport & HS2 Station
 
03:13
A new motorway junction costing more than £250 million will benefit Birmingham Airport and make it easier to use a planned high speed rail station, Ministers have pledged. Birmingham’s business leaders welcomed plans to rebuild junction six of the M42, which connects the motorway network with the A45, a main road running from Birmingham, Solihull and Coventry. The project is part of a £15 billion road-building programme designed to increase capacity on England’s roads and improve their condition. The new measures, alongside projects announced in previous years, also mean that there will be a stretch of “smart motorway” linking London, Birmingham and Manchester.
