In Pictures: All change at Grand Central

As previously featured on these pages, up until next summer, all trams at Grand Central will be arriving at departing at platform 1 to allow for the continuation of construction work of the extension of West Midlands Metro which will eventually reach Edgbaston. This means that trams now use the crossover just after departure from Grand Central instead of drawing forward along Stephenson Street to just outside the Ian Allan bookstore. Photos from Martin Miller showing the new arrangements.

24 stands at Grand Central awaiting departure. Barriers block the track alongside the other platform.

    I presume the more substantial worksite is looking up Pinfold Street
