The atrium for the redeveloped Birmingham New Street station has been unveiled after work to demolish the old structure was completed.
More than 6,000t of concrete has been removed from under the new atrium allowing natural light to flood the new concourse for the first time.
New temporary platforms will be suspended from the atrium steelwork so work can to attach the cladding to the atrium’s interior can begin, ahead of the station’s opening in September.
Network Rail project director for Birmingham New Street Chris Montgomery said: “The completion of this work marks a huge milestone for the project. Building the atrium roof and removing such a large amount of concrete from the centre of the building was a huge feat of engineering.”
