Work has been in progress on the revamp of New Street Station for several months now. So what are the visible signs?……
Considering that planning permission for the the project (application number 2009/05720/PA) was only given at the public Planning Committee Meeting at the Council house on 4 February 2010, some real progress has been made.
The photos below are from the South side of the station, the side that will become the main entrance to the station. The artists impression of this is shown above. This side will be redeveloped first.
The first level car park has been attacked with lowering of the outside wall.
There are signs of structural builds, from the West………
…..and from the East.
Platform 13 track was removed 3 months ago I’m told.
When will the queue of taxis be moved I wonder.
