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 opposite side of the M42 motorway from the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham Airport and Birmingham International railway station.[4] The interchange will be connected by a people mover to these locations with a capacity of over 2100 passengers per hour in each direction in the peak period.[3]

Journey time from this station to London is planned to be 38 minutes.[3]
