Curzon Street Station design engagement


Curzon Street Station design engagement

The new HS2 Curzon Street Station is going to be a catalyst for economic growth, a landmark destination that the local community can be proud of, and an icon at the heart of a great city and the national railway network.

Opening with seven high speed platforms in 2026, the new station is located within a brownfield site in the Eastside district on the edge of the city centre. The existing Moor Street Station is at one end, the Millennium Point Development and historic Curzon Street Station building are to the north of the site and the existing Birmingham to Rugby railway line runs along the south side.

The new station will not only be for high speed rail passengers, it will be a brand new public space and gateway into Birmingham city centre. It will be fully integrated into an extended tram network, as well as offering pedestrian, cycle, taxi, bus and conventional rail connections to the rest of the city and the wider West Midlands.

Station design

The design features several new public spaces around the new station that will enhance the character and vibrancy of the area by providing areas for recreation and leisure. The station will also include opportunities for:

  • new shops and retail spaces.
  • public art projects to celebrate and reflect local culture in the station design.
  • Preserving and enhancing the setting of local heritage assets, including the original Grade 1 listed Curzon Street Station building.
  • linking seamlessly with other types of transport such as the metro, bus, walking and cycling networks.
  • linking different parts of Birmingham together, while enabling the regeneration and growth of Digbeth and the surrounding areas.
  • The station and the surrounding public space has been designed to integrate into Birmingham’s future transport network. In the design, our aim has been to maximise the links with other forms of transport including:

  • Integration of the Midland Metro ‘Birmingham Eastside Extension’, with a stop in Albert Street, serving the Western and Eastern concourse.
  • A simple and seamless connection to Moor Street Station.
  • Pedestrian routes to local bus services, Sprint (a rapid transit bus service) and onwards to other train services.
  • Provision of safe, convenient cycle access and cycle parking.
  • Generous station square public space with good public transport, walking and cycling links into Digbeth and the City Centre.
