Midland Metro Extensions
The Midland Metro Alliance (MMA) is a team of planning, design and construction specialists building a number of new tram extensions over the coming decade on behalf of the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). The alliance consists of the WMCA, which owns the Midland Metro; a consortium of design experts from Egis, Tony Gee and Pell Frischmann; and rail construction specialists Colas Rail – with Colas’ sub-alliance partners Colas Ltd, Barhale, Thomas Vale and Auctus Management Group.
With around £1.3bn being invested in extending the tram system across the West Midlands over the next ten years, this is an unprecedented light rail infrastructure project to help deliver a lasting legacy that will enable social and economic regeneration across the region, with £250m for the Wednesbury to Brierley Hill extension confirmed by government in November 2017.
There are currently a number of schemes in different stages of development, which can be seen at the MMA website, that include:
- Wolverhampton City Centre Extension
- Edgbaston and Centenary Square Extensions
- Eastside Extension
- Wednesbury to Brierley Hill Extension
- East Birmingham/Solihull
