New Street Station February update
Since my last update, New Street New Year - work set to steel approval, work continues albeit mostly hidden from view on the redevelopment of New Street Station. Meanwhile the government has released funds for the Midland Metro expansion, Metro funding helps transport out of bust, after approving Centro's case for the project. The £75 million pounds made available for the £129m project should enable work to proceed to open the extension and it's new terminus at New Street Station in time for the opening of the redeveloped station in 2015, http://www.birminghammail.net/news/birmingham-news/2011/02/05/government-makes-75m-available-for-midland-metro-expansion-97319-28116724/.
