New City Centre Interchanges
Works are currently taking place in the Birmingham city centre to provide six new bus interchanges around the city core. Improvements will be made to streets, public spaces, shelters and on-street information. As a result some bus services will move temporarily before works are completed in August 2012.
There are four stages to the work:
- Carrs Lane Closure – already underway, bus services which stopped here have temporarily moved to stops on Albert Street and Dale End.
- Moor St Queensway/Priory Queensway closure (20 days approx) – scheduled for May. One side will close for resurfacing and the buses will move to the central reservation on Moor St Queensway. The buses which used Priory Queensway will use alternative stops in the city.
- Moor St Queensway closure (20 days approx) – scheduled for remainder of May and into June. This work will see resurfacing of the other carriageway and the bus stops move back to their original and final stopping points on Moor St Queensway. On completion of this work Moor Street Queensway becomes two–way.
- Closure of the junction of Bull Street and Corporation Street – this is a 55 day closure from June to alter this junction. This is when the buses will move from Corporation Street. When the junction reopens, the traffic on Carrs Lane and Lower Bull Street reverses direction so that traffic comes off Moor Street Queensway and up Carrs Lane, Lower Bull Street and turns right onto Corporation Street to join Old Square.
