This is how the transformed Birmingham International Station will look once it has been reconfigured as a fully integrated transport exchange, linked to the new HS2 Interchange Station in Solihull.

The £286M revamp of Birmingham International fits to the link to a new station, one of two HS2 stations serving Greater Birmingham. It will see HS2 services calling before they reach Curzon Street in the city centre.

The new images follow the award of £9.27M to support the design process.

The Urban Growth Co. — set up by Solihull Council to maximise the benefits of HS2’s arrival — secured the funding from the West Midlands Combined Authority.

The plans form a major part of the ambitions for the U.K. Central Hub, the area  near the M42 including Birmingham Airport, the NEC, Jaguar Land Rover, Birmingham Business Park and Arden Cross, which will be home to the HS2 Interchange Station from 2026.

The UGC has predicted that The Hub has the potential to create up to 77,500 new jobs, 8.3M SF of commercial space, 4,000 new homes and £4.1B of gross value added each year.
