Network Rail is to submit new plans for the £600M redevelopment of New Street Station after criticism of its footbridge proposal.
The Navigation Street footbridge was originally due to be clad with stainless steel, to fit in with the rest of the station design.
But Network Rail wanted to remove the cladding, saying the bridge could not sustain the weight without strengthening works, reports the Birmingham Evening Mail.
The railway operator wanted to clean the bridge but, following talks with Birmingham City Council planning officials, this idea was scrapped and removed from the planning application.
New proposals will go before planning committee later this week.
Planning officer David Wells, in a report to committee, said: “In the event that Network Rail proposes future changes to the Navigation Street footbridge and entrances, they have agreed to an independent design review and would seek to involve the city council in selecting a suitable design panel.”
Other changes are expected to include alterations to the stainless steel cladding covering the multi-storey car park and amendments to the access ramps, which planning officers say will improve the station’s appearance.
