Can you imagine Brum being handed £78m to build a performance venue.
Even funnier would be can you imagine Sandwell spending nearly that much

Is that up & downhill or just down

Of it's own money and that of other contributors. The government didn't hand them any money and certainly not £78m. There's the difference my friend.

Why isn't a government led infrastructure programme of such high importance costing any city any money anyway?

That's what I want to know.

Yea but Manchester had influenced the governments agenda for the past twenty years and is now reaping the benefit by playing the game in its favour. While our leaders bicker, politik, challenge and push back. Smart and fair play to them. We only have ourselves and our poor leaders to blame

I though most of the 72Million was from the Arts Council & not Sandwells money. OK I think Sandwell contributed to make up the short fall & subsidise the place

I wanted to know if that's going up hill or downhill or both?

Neither, it's just down to the speed of the train. Although the higher you go, the less dense the air becomes, but I doubt HS2 is going to be cruising at airliner altitudes.

As long as this doesn't touch my works "new" office building (well it isn't that new) as we only moved in 2 months ago.


Can confirm that I see a car park to the left (after I leave the bridge over the Digbeth Branch Canal).

That golden cladding suggests some adulterous interference by the LoB milkman.

Maybe a trip on the Metro to West Bromwich to see the Sandwell Campus might have been in order if they wanted inspiration
