Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and the West Midlands Rail Executive (WMRE) are building feasibility and business cases for the schemes. 

Funding from the West Midlands City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement (CRSTS) has broadened the possibility of development. 

Three of the new stations need to be planned now so they can be built and ready to open alongside Midlands Rail Hub and HS2. 

Five proposed stations 

  • Balsall Heath – On the Camp Hill line in Birmingham. Would require construction of the Bordesley Chords and extra capacity at Moor Street Station. 
  • Coventry East (Binley) – On the main line between Coventry and Rugby. 
  • Foleshill – On the Coventry-Nuneaton line. 
  • Castle Bromwich – East of Birmingham.  
  • Tettenhall – West of Wolverhampton on the line to Shrewsbury. 

Further expansion 

Construction is currently underway on five other stations in the region – three on the Camp Hill line in south Birmingham at Moseley Village, Kings Heath and Pineapple Road, and two on the Walsall to Wolverhampton line serving Darlaston and Willenhall. 

“Alongside these projects now underway, we’re turning our attention to the next set of stations and these five are a good place to start,” said Andy Street, mayor of the West Midlands and WMRE chairman.
