One of the West Midlands' busiest railway stations is set for a major redevelopment to improve facilities for passengers.

University Station in Birmingham is used by 3.3 million passengers a year - vastly more than the 400,000 it was designed for in the 1970s.

The expansion of the University of Birmingham, together with the on-going development of University Hospital Birmingham and major regeneration of the surrounding area, have all played a part in driving the huge growth in passenger numbers.

The West Midlands Rail Executive (WMRE) and Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) are leading the project to create a station fit for the future capable of handling 7.2 million passengers a year.

The new station building, located close to the existing station, will offer a bright and comfortable space and new facilities for passengers.

Platforms will be connected by a wide footbridge which will also provide direct access from the station across the canal to the University campus.
