Sprint routes

By 2026 we expect the Sprint network to be made up of seven routes, which will provide essential links to the two HS2 stations serving the region in Birmingham City Centre and Birmingham International.

Between 22 August and 5 October, Transport for West Midlands ran a public consultation on the first three Sprint routes, which will be built in time for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham:

  • A34 - Walsall to Birmingham via Sandwell, with a journey time of 40 minutes or less.
  • Sutton Coldfield to Birmingham via the planned new neighbourhood at Langley, with a journey time of 12 minutes or less between Sutton Coldfield and Langley, and 30 minutes or less between Langley and Birmingham.
  • A45 - Solihull and Birmingham Airport to Birmingham, with a journey time of 45 minutes or less between Birmingham Airport and Birmingham city centre, and 45 minutes or less between Solihull and Birmingham city centre.
