Birmingham curzon HS2


Published on

Birmingham Curzon will be a completely new rail station for High Speed Two (HS2) in the heart of the city – the first in over 100 years. The station forms a key part of the Government's plans for the HS2 line.
The building of a landmark High Speed Two Terminus Station in Birmingham city centre will provide the area with significant economic and development opportunities.
This event provides an opportunity to hear about the city’s vision for the new Station and how it will use this nationally important piece of infrastructure as a catalyst for regeneration and growth in Birmingham.
