Proposals for a radical yet respectful transformation of Birmingham Moor Street station have been revealed by West Midlands Rail Executive, in collaboration with Midlands Connect and other partners.

There's a proposal to double the concourse area and introduce two new platforms to create a station fit for the future, with passenger numbers projected to grow to 12 million by 2043.
A “One Station” concept aims to integrate Moor Street with HS2 Curzon Street and New Street with seamless access between the stations.
A second entrance towards Digbeth is proposed to support huge regeneration in the area.
These initial concepts - developed by West Midlands Rail Executive in collaboration with Transport for West Midlands, Midlands Connect, Network Rail, HS2 Ltd, Chiltern Railways, West Midlands Railway and Birmingham City Council – is the first stage of a long-term plan to transform Moor Street in to a world class station experience, and place the station at the centre of Birmingham’s unprecedented regeneration.
