PROPOSALS to build seven new stations in the Birmingham area have been identified by West Midlands Trains as part of its plans for the Commonwealth Games in four years from now.

As the Australian Games draw to a close, WMT has unveiled its plans to be a core part of the next games in Birmingham in 2022, aided by new trains, more electrification and station upgrades. These will include the rebuilding of Perry Barr, which will be the nearest station to the Alexander Stadium and the Athletes’ Village. University will also be given a major upgrade, while the Cross City Line itself will have extra capacity.
