Camp Hill line stations

We’re investing in 3 new stations on the Camp Hill line in South Birmingham. This is part of the West Midlands Rail Programme (WMRP).

This project will provide faster, more reliable transport for people who live or work in the area. It will also mean that train journeys could replace up to 25% of car journeys. This will improve the local area, reducing congestion and pollution.

The new stations will shorten journey times in South Birmingham. They’ll also support the community by:

  • making it easier to travel for work, education or leisure
  • creating more than 130 jobs during construction
  • making it easier for everyone to access the stations

We have appointed VolkerFitzpatrick as our principal contractor to design and build the 3 new stations and work is underway.

The challenge - why we’re doing this

The 3 original stations in this area closed in 1941. Since then, the area’s population has grown. There’s also more commercial activity. This means more people are travelling. This has led to traffic congestion and long journey times.

The solution - what the project will do

There will be 3 new stations at Moseley Village, Kings Heath and Pineapple Road. They’ll each have 2 platforms suitable for 6-car trains. The stations will also have:

  • pedestrian footbridges, stairs and lifts
  • ticket machines and information systems
  • passenger help points on each platform
  • secure bike parking

The stations at Pineapple Road and Moseley Village will also have a pick-up and drop-off area.

Shorter journey times

The new stations will make people’s journeys faster.

The estimated journey times to Birmingham New Street are:

  • 14 minutes from Pineapple Road - saving 16 to 31 minutes
  • 11 minutes from Kings Heath - saving 9 to 24 minutes
  • 8 minutes from Moseley Village - saving 7 to 21 minutes
