The Birmingham Westside Metro extension to Centenary Square was the next phase of works following the West Midlands Metro extension from St Chads to Grand Central, and opened for passengers ahead of schedule in December 2019.
The first phase of construction was between Grand Central, past Birmingham's Town Hall to Centenary Square. The extension provides West Midlands Metro stops serving Victoria Square and the Paradise and Arena Central developments at the redeveloped Centenary Square.
The 840 metre route is the first in the UK to operate on battery power throughout. Metro operation on battery power removes the need to fix electric wires to the listed buildings along the route, reducing the aesthetic and environmental footprint of the project.
The Midland Metro Alliance will be also improving the public realm as part of their works in the area project, including planting trees along the route.
