Half time switch over at New Street Station

Everything has changed at New Street Station as they reach the half way point of the project.

The concourse and the existing entrances have now closed and three new entrances have opened into the first half of your new station.


Whilst the new atrium won't be unveiled until the end of the project in 2015, the first half of the station has opened with all of the facilities you expect, plus new lifts and escalators to every platform to improve access.

There's lots of useful information here, including the new map to help you get around the station.





Here's the map of the new layout and entrances
