Narrator: Following on from the spending review’s reaffirmation of the government’s commitment to the Midland Metro Line One extension in Birmingham, Minister for Local and Regional Transport Norman Baker visited Snow Hill station.

The Metro has become an integral part of the city’s transport system, and this proposed scheme, through the city centre, will run to a new terminus outside the main entrance to Birmingham New Street Station. The aim is to not only provide a better link to the national rail network and help to reduce congestion, but also help towards regeneration and economic development.

As they develop the scheme, the Department for Transport will work closely with Centro, the West Midlands Passenger Transport Executive, as they develop this scheme to ensure value for money for the taxpayer.
