You missed this post from Mr Metrogogo!

Line 1 has finally been connected to the extension, between St Paul's and Snow Hill.

More on city centre extension - to be precise, when works are finished in the couple of days or more, trams will no longer run to old platforms at Snow Hill and instead will use new viaduct and will terminate at new Bull St tram stop. The rest of extension (Bull St-New St station) will be completed by the end of this year:

Trams last ran into the old Snow Hill Tram Stop on Saturday 25th October 2015.

Since then they have been terminating and turning back at St Paul's.

So should re-open in approx 4 weeks (to Bull Street as you say above).

Midland Metro services to return to Birmingham city centre
09.11.2015



Trams will return to the streets of Birmingham for the first time in more than 60 years when Midland Metro services start running into the city centre on December 6.

The announcement by Centro will see passengers taken directly to a new stop in Bull Street as the first step in the opening of the £128 million city centre tram extension.

Traders gearing up for the busy festive shopping period also issued a resounding 'Open for Business' message today after Centro announced a scaling back of tram works in the run up to Christmas
