Fast, frequent, reliable journeys
Welcome to one of the biggest, most-integrated rail networks outside of the capital. Be it for business or pleasure, you’re better connected than ever, whether you’re travelling in the West Midlands, or beyond.
If you’re going further afield, you’re right at the heart of the National Rail network. London, Manchester, Scotland and Wales are all easily accessible, as is Birmingham Airport.
Lifts renewal at The Hawthorns rail and Metro station
Network Rail is replacing both lifts at The Hawthorns rail and Metro station to improve journeys for passengers.
Both lifts at the station – which have not been replaced since the station was opened in 1995 - will be completely replaced and the much-needed work will make step-free access more reliable to both station platforms.
Work will start on Tuesday 1 December and finish in Spring 2021. While work is underway, there will be no step-free access available at the Hawthorns station as both lifts will be refurbished at once. This approach will minimise the length of time that journeys are disrupted and the number of journeys impacted as there are far fewer passengers currently travelling because of the impact of coronavirus.
