This post takes you along the Birminghm City 1.4km extension to the Metro using Google Maps and photos taken by me recently…..
My current information is that funding is in place and the work should be completed some time in 2012. The buses currently using Bull Street and Corporation Street will be rerouted……
The route runs from Snowhill Station to New Street Station a distance of 1.4 km.
Below is a Google Map showing the route of the extension as a blue line. Along the route are markers from where the photos were shot always in a clockwise direction. To view a photo, click on a marker then on View in the small window that opens. You can adjust the scale and view of the map using the controls in the top left corner. REMEMBER to return to the original map view by using the back arrow.
