On 28th April New Street Station got a brand new set of entrances leading to a brand new concourse.
This marks half way in the total transformation of the station.
The old entrances at the eastern end by T K Maxx are now closed and new entrances opened at the western end. If you’re approaching by car the new Drop and Go access is from the west, off Navigation Street. There’s also a new short stay car park above the station approached from the Drop and Go access road. Anyone arriving at New Street station now has a totally transformed experience of modernity and light rather than the dingy dim experience of before. Congratulations to Network Rail!
Needless to say we had it surveyed and live to the world by lunchtime on April 28th, some 5 hours after the new configuration opened!
