West Midlands Metro tram extensions

We are part of the Midland Metro Alliance (MMA). The MMA also includes design experts and rail construction specialists. Together we’re building £1.3 billion of new tram extensions in the West Midlands.

We help to develop plans for new tram extensions. We find potential new routes and write business cases to get funding. The new extensions will transform the region. They’ll make it easier for lots of people to get the tram. They’ll also help create new jobs.

We are also planning an extension from Birmingham city centre to East Birmingham and Solihull.

Transport and Works Act orders

We get government permission for our tram work under the Transport and Works Act. When the government approves the work, this is called a Transport and Works act order.
