Passenger Focus

“It is vital that all parties press to get the pieces of this financial and legal jigsaw into place and get the new station built. Then Birmingham will have a station to be proud of.”

Paul Fullwood, Passenger Link Manager


“The New Street Gateway project is about much more than improving safety and increasing capacity, it is an inspirational scheme to create a new-look station that creates the right impression and provides up to date facilities for passengers”

Michael Byng, RICS West Midlands


"Birmingham New Street is the hub of Virgin Trains' national route network. Not only is it the origin or destination station for many journeys, it is a key interchange for a large number more. Since 1994 the number of passengers travelling with us has more than doubled, increasing further New Street's importance. The upgraded station will benefit millions of passengers every year".
