About the event

Birmingham Curzon Street Station will be one of the most environmentally-friendly stations in the world. It is designed to meet a ‘BREEAM excellent’ standard, which is an industry recognised standard for buildings that reduce energy usage and materials waste and minimise their impact on the natural environment. The station itself will be net zero carbon in operation and adopt the latest eco-friendly design and sustainable technologies, including capturing rainwater and utilising sustainable power generation, with over 2,800m2 of solar panels located on platform canopies.

Significant progress has already been made on site at Curzon Street, during our early construction works activity. Site clearance is now complete and a massive archaeological programme, involving 70 archaeologists, has unearthed the world’s oldest railway roundhouse.

The railway will arrive into Birmingham on Curzon No 2 Viaduct, which has been nicknamed “The Bellingham Bridge” by the team in honour of England superstar and Stourbridge-born Jude Bellingham.

Progress on the Curzon No.3 Viaduct, which will be the final approach to the new station, is moving forward with several piers installed. In total, 30 piers will be installed, with varying heights between five and six metres above ground level.


Visitors will have a chance to visit and view this site from the Curzon viewing platform . This elevated viewing platform provides an amazing view over the works area which includes piling and reinforced concrete works. Your group will be able to talk to young people working n the project. Please note this visit of for school or college groups only.
