Birmingham Airport mulls plan for terminal inside HS2 station


Birmingham Airport and HS2 are in discussions over plans that could see a terminal built directly into the new interchange station on the outskirts of the city.

The airport’s head of planning, development and infrastructure Robert Eaton said it was currently in discussions with HS2 over a number of options for its 2030 masterplan, and one of those being closely considered would see an airport terminal built within the station.

Speaking at NCE’s Airport design and development event on Thursday, Mr Eaton said: “One option is to provide facilities in the HS2 terminal such as bag drop and things like that and we have asked HS2 to factor that into their design.

“But we could also take that a step further and build the whole terminal over there, so you step off the HS2 train and you are in the terminal.

HS2 High Speed Birmingham Interchange incorporated within the UKCentral site







The High Speed Rail station in East Birmingham serving Birmingham Airport, the National Exhibition Centre & UKCentral is in addition to the new terminus to be built in the City Centre.

Moda/Apache PRS 42 storey tower

Newly released CGI shows how £183 million, 42-storey tower in Birmingham's night-life capital will look.

A full planning application with firm details of the final project will be submitted to Birmingham City Council in due course after an exhibition next week where members of the public will be able to see the proposals in person.

Moda/Apache PRS 42 storey tower

Sat on top of the Broad Street podium, it appears to be 44 storeys above street level.




This new tower above will be just across the road from the two residential towers below, currently under construction.

Is that the actual design of the HS2 station when it finally happens or is that just a placeholder?

It is just a vision at the moment, however expect to see the actual design hopefully sometime this year or maybe early next year.
