Midland Metro service change: Sunday 2nd October

Bull Street will again be the terminus for Midland Metro services heading into Birmingham on Sunday 2nd October between approximately 1030 and 1500. This is due to the TUC march taking place in Birmingham City Centre and the resulting road closures.

    (1) Does the council/police have to ask metro to curtail services in the event of a event taking place?

    (2) Whats going to happen when Metro reaches edgbaston and there are similar events such a political conferences?

    (3) Can metro refuse to curtail route?

    I don’t know for sure but I would imagine if the decision is made to close roads for whatever reason Midland Metro don’t have a great deal of choice in the matter. It isn’t the first tramway to be affected by temporary closures like this and it sure won’t be the last.

    When the route is extended through the City Centre they will most probably run a service either side of the blockade as the chances are any closure wouldn’t need to be put in place until later in the day so trams will easily be able to be positioned as required.
