UK: Transport for West Midlands has appointed VolkerFitzpatrick to build Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell stations as part of the £61m project to reintroduce passenger services on the Camp Hill line in the south of Birmingham.

Site works are scheduled to begin in November for completion in 2023.

The West Midlands Combined Authority is providing £36m towards the cost, with £20m from the Department for Transport and £5m from Birmingham City Council’s clean air zone fund.

‘After several years of planning and development, we are now entering the final phase and it will not be too long before these stations are complete and open to the travelling public’, said TfWM’s Rail Director Malcolm Holmes on April 25.

TfWM said reintroducing passenger services to the line after 80 years would provide commuters from Hazelwell station with a 14 min journey into the city centre, compared to up to 45 min by car at peak times.
