Line of Midland Metro extension parallel to Snow Hill Station, Birmingham
Line of Midland Metro extension parallel to Snow Hill Station, Birmingham
The Midland Metro tram currently terminates at Snow Hill Station (in a cutting behind the wall, left). The first phase of the extension takes the route through the city centre to New Street Station LinkExternal link
The extension is being diverted south of St Paul's Station up to street level parallel to Snow Hill. The strip of grass in this photo is the reserved route awaiting construction. It passes the new offices named One and Two Snow Hill. The steps in the foreground lead down to them and the tram from the precinct off Colmore Row. Once the Metro extension is operational the old terminus will resume life as a much-needed platform for rail services at Snow Hill.
