National Rail interchange with National Rail at all stations

Birmingham Interchange is a planned High Speed 2 railway station in the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull, West Midlands, England, expected to open in 2026.[2]

Unlike the city centre based Birmingham Curzon Street railway station, the interchange station will be a parkway, serving the east side of Birmingham and surrounding urban areas.[3]

The station will be on the east side of the M42 motorway, and linked to the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International railway station[4] by a people mover. The people mover will have a capacity of over 2,100 passengers per hour in each direction in the peak period.[3]


Current service proposals suggest five trains per hour will stop at Birmingham Interchange, in each direction. Journey time from this station to London is planned to be 38 minutes.[3]

Transport links[edit]

A proposed 17km long branch of the West Midlands Metro would terminate at this station, connecting it to the local tram network.[5]
