Thank you capricorn2000 and Gratteciel for your kind comments.

Welcome back to Birmingham where we start with a photo of the bronze statue of Admiral Nelson, along with a back drop of the iconic Selfridges Department Store.

Awesome pictures thank you!
Birmingham has so much potential. Do think as mentioned by others a 'big dig' initiative as seen in Boston should be implemented, making pedestrian king and freeing up further development opportunities which the city can certainly sustain.
Thanks Metrogogo - good to see Brummie representation

I can't see anything like the Boston Big Dig happening in Birmingham in the foreseeable future, simply because getting money from the government to fund infrastructure projects of this magnitude is nigh impossible, fortunately, we already have the Queensway Tunnels running underneath the city centre which diverts traffic underneath the city instead of the busy streets above.

High Speed Rail 2 will be a massive opportunity for the city, where huge areas around Curzon Street HS2 railway Station in Digbeth will be redeveloped, a government Regeneration Agency has already been set up.
