Metro plan to take passengers from Wolverhampton to New Cross back on track
December 29, 2014 9:00 am



A long-awaited new Midland Metro tram line from Wolverhampton to New Cross Hospital is being revived after 10 years on the shelf

Plans for the new line have been a dream since the Metro was first opened in 1999 but suffered various setbacks over funding.

Now the three-extension is being put in a transport blueprint for Wolverhampton setting out what council bosses want to see between 2015 and 2026.

Proposals for the line - previously dubbed the Five Ws because it would have eventually connected Wolverhampton, Wednesfield, Willenhall, Walsall, and Wednesbury - have failed to ever get off the planning stage.

Barriers at Wolverhampton St. George's stop recently removed, but it's not reopened yet - work continues on crossovers:

Platform Extension.

The extended platform will occupy the area where the former crossover was situated, a new crosover will be installed a few metres further down the line, and the overhead reconfigured to suit.
