Eastside Birmingham City Centre

Duration: Mon 13 Jan 2020 to Spring 2026
Location: Birmingham

What’s happening?

The Eastside of Birmingham City Centre is set to be transformed through a multimillion pound regeneration project, led by Birmingham City Council, to improve housing, office and leisure space.

With the extension of the metro line, the opening of HS2 Curzon Street Station and the introduction of Sprint, the area will be one of the most connected parts of city.

Before all this happens, there is a lot to do and some of these works may cause disruption to your journey.

During the work, there will be changes to the way you travel to and from some parts of the city centre. You will need to plan ahead and remember to check your journey regularly. 

As more information becomes available, we will share it here, so please check back regularly. 

Latest Works:

Moor Street Queensway Restrictions and Park Street closure

Following the closure of Park Street earlier this year, a bus gate has been introduced on Moor Street Queensway between Moor Street Station and the junction with Carrs Lane.

This means:

  • Only buses, cyclists and hackney carriages (black cabs) can use Moor Street Queensway.
  • If you are travelling by private vehicle to Bullring and Selfridges car parks or Moor Street station, approach from the Digbeth side (leave the Middleway at Camp Hill or Bordesley Circus).
  • If you are travelling by private vehicle to the M&S collection area, Carrs Lane or Albert Street, approach from the Moor Street Queensway (north) side (leave the Middleway at A47, the old Ashted Circus).
  • Please check your route before you travel, as you may now need to leave the Middleway Ring Road at a different point to reach your destination. For example, Thinktank and Birmingham Children’s Hospital can only be reached from the north, and locations in Digbeth can only be reached from the east or south.

Please note, the bus gate will be temporarily suspended from 4 January to 8 January 2021 , but restrictions will resume after this date


Things we're doing to help
  • There will be clearly signposted lane closures, road closure and pedestrian management to explain these changes to road users and pedestrians. 

  • We will work with partners to keep disruption to a minimum. 

  • We have created a toolkit that provides further information and contains a number of useful assets that can be used to communicate with staff, students, customers and visitors of organisations in the area affected by the works.
