Birmingham Curzon Street
The new HS2 Curzon Street Station is going to be a catalyst for economic growth, a landmark destination that the local community can be proud to host, and an icon at the heart of a great city and the national railway network.

Opening with seven high speed platforms in 2026, the new station is located within a brownfield site in the Eastside district on the edge of the city centre. The existing Moor Street station is at one end, the Millennium Point development and historic Curzon Street station building are to the north of the site and the existing Birmingham to Rugby railway line runs along the south side.
The new station will not only be for high speed rail passengers. It will be a brand new public space and gateway into Birmingham city centre. It will be fully integrated into an extended tram network, as well as offering pedestrian, cycle, taxi, bus and conventional rail connections to the rest of the city and the wider West Midlands.
Birmingham City Council’s Curzon Street Investment Plan will see £900 million spent on regenerating the area around the new station. The scheme will take place over 30 years, leading to the creation of several new neighbourhoods across almost 150 hectares, including 4,000 homes and 36,000 jobs.
