Mott MacDonald to conduct Birmingham International transport study

Birmingham International Station SnowmanRadio Wikicommons

Mott MacDonald has been commissioned to undertake a study into transport links for Birmingham International Station. 

Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council has commissioned the company to create a comprehensive integrated transport study for the station, which connects Birmingham Airport to the national rail network.

Mott MacDonald’s study will examine links between Birmingham International Station, the Birmingham HS2 interchange, the National Exhibition Centre, Genting Arena and the new Genting Resorts World complex. 

Commuters between these areas use mainline rail, buses, cars, taxis and an automatic people mover that connects Birmingham International with Birmingham Airport.

The overall aim is to integrate an efficient transport interchange with emerging masterplans at Birmingham Airport and the NEC. 

Mott MacDonald expects to finish the report in the second quarter of 2017, with the transport hub becoming operational before the Birmingham HS2 interchange opens in 2026. 

Grimshaw Architects will work with Mott MacDonald on scheme design, strategic advice, stakeholder engagement, risk management, architecture, engineering and cost estimating services. 

“We’re delighted to be involved in this landmark project that will improve critical transport links in the region and help capture inward investment as a result of HS2,” said Mott MacDonald’s project director Kevin Riley.

“This study will provide an exciting opportunity to bring together a host of our multidisciplinary skills from across a number of our offices.”
