Corporation St/Bull St loading bays temporarily closed during Metro works
Posted on: 01/07/21
The West Midlands Metro line in Birmingham city centre is to receive essential upgrades and maintenance alongside ongoing activity to extend the tramway to both Digbeth and Edgbaston with track replacement along Corporation Street to begin late July.
In June, construction for the Birmingham Eastside Metro extension, which will make the most out of HS2 and assist the regeneration of Digbeth, got underway with the closure of Lower Bull Street to public transportation.
For the duration of the planned maintenance works along Corporation Street, beginning 25 July and expected to wrap-up in October, tram services will continue to serve Birmingham city centre at a temporary terminus at Bull Street in the Colmore Business District.
From 25 July, all loading bays along Corporation Street and Bull Street, as well as access to side streets from Corporation Street, will be temporarily inaccessible whilst essential track replacement works are carried out.
Access for loading will be along High Street, New Street, Cherry Street, Temple Row and Stephenson Street. Pedestrian access to all frontages will be maintained during these works, unless advised otherwise.
Dedicated Stakeholder Liaison Officer, Amy Walker, will be available to contact using the information should you have any questions. For assistance with deliveries please contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although every effort is made to minimise disruption, some of the work will involve an element of noise. Where possible, Midland Metro Alliance aims to advise those living and working in the area as to when these activities will take place and the team will utilise noise mitigation measures, including noise monitoring equipment and noise reduction barriers, as required. Midland Metro Alliance apologises in advance for any inconvenience that this may cause.
