Construction is everywhere

You even have to walk through it to get from one side of the city centre to the other.

Great shots Sandblast of the canals. Surely would be worth sending a link to Bham Tourism, BHX and perhaps the airlines including Primera to attract their clientele next year from N. York, Boston and Toronto, even though the weather isn't always quite as shown!

I think it's from the blue footbridge between Selfridges and Moor Street Car Park. Is nowhere else it could be taken from that view.

Midland Metro gets Government cash to expand.

Theresa May announces £250 million for major Midland Metro extension and more.

Greater Birmingham will get £250 million for transport, including a major expansion of the Midland Metro from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill in the Black Country.

Prime Minister Theresa May is to announce £250 million to improve transport in the West Midlands as she visits the region today - including a major extension to the Midland Metro.

The cash will fund an extension of the light-rail Metro from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill in the Black Country.

It's the first allocation from a new £1.7 billion "Transforming Cities" fund, designed to improve transport links and promote local growth within city regions across the country.

The money will go to the West Midlands Combined Authority, led by West Midlands Mayor Andy Street and local council leaders.

And the Authority is set to use the cash to fund a new metro line from Wednesbury to the new "DY5 Enterprise Zone" for high-tech businesses at Brierley Hill, running through Great Bridge, Horseley Heath, Dudley Port, Dudley town centre, the Waterfront and Merry Hill, before terminating at Brierley Hill town centre.

This is the first of a series of proposed extensions to the Metro. Others includes lines to Wolverhampton interchange and to the HS2 terminal at Curzon Street in Birmingham.

It's comes as Chancellor Phillip Hammond, who will join Mrs May on her visit to the West Midlands, prepares to present his Budget statement on Wednesday.

The Government will also announce a major boost in spending on research and development, with an extra investment of £2.3 billion in 2021/22, raising total public investment in R&D to £12.5 billion in that year.
handed the full business case for the Metro extension to Transport Secretary Chris Grayling in July

The West Midlands wanted £200 million for the scheme, leaving open the possibility that some cash from today's grant will be left over for other projects.

Mayor Andy Street said: "The Midland Metro extension to Brierley Hill is the West Midlands Combined Authority’s (WMCA) priority transport project and the £250m from Government means we can get underway.

"The importance of this extension is difficult to understate. It will open up sites for housing and regeneration and reconnect Dudley and Brierley Hill to the rail network for the first time in decade.

"Perhaps most importantly, it connects the DY5 Enterprise Zone to the network and supercharges proposals to create thousands of jobs in Brierley Hill.

"This has been a long time coming - many decades in fact - but because of the WMCA presenting a compelling case to Government, we are finally able to start work, subject to board approval.

"We now begin looking at the next projects we want to fund, with the extension of the Metro to Eastside to connect with the HS2 station at Curzon and the reopening of the Camp Hill line very much in our sights."

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: "Investment in transport is crucial to a strong and resilient economy. The Transforming Cities Fund will drive productivity and growth in cities where this is most needed, connecting communities and making it quicker and easier for people to get around.

"We have already seen the impact of better integrated transport links for both passengers and the local economy in cities like Nottingham and Manchester.

"This new fund will enable more English cities to reap these benefits, helping to deliver the opportunities and ambition of the Industrial Strategy across the country, as well as driving forward the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine."

The measures are part of the Government's Industrial Strategy, designed to create good jobs.

Writing in The Times, Mrs May said: "One of my first actions as Prime Minister was to begin the development of a modern industrial strategy that will help businesses to create high-quality, well paid jobs right across the country.

"This is a new long-term approach to shaping a stronger and fairer economy for decades to come.

"It helps young people to develop the skills they need to take up the high-paid, high-skilled jobs of the future."

The Budget will include measures to boost the car industry, with £400 million for electric car charging points and measures to put driverless cars on the UK's roads by 2021.

Ministers believe the driverless car industry will be worth £28 billion to the UK economy by 2035 and support 27,000 jobs.

I did make a comment like "Great photos's PB" on the Exchange Square thread at the weekend as i do really appreciate your hard work and so do others.

All of us are doing a great job promoting the Birmingham story so thanks to everybody, at the start of the year this thread was only updated by Sandblast, and then i took some responsibility to keep it upto date as much as i can and now others from the Birmingham forum are here too.
