Metro Development

After my post on the new Midland Metro extension proposal I asked Centro about their confidence in the new proposals. Judging by their response they seem pretty up-beat about the chances of success this time around. Maybe after 10 years of swimming upstream against Government policies which discriminate against trams it looks like we may at last be on the cusp of achieving a tram network to be proud of in the West Midlands.

Metro Development

Thank you for your email regarding the future Metro development projects to bring more tram services to the streets of the West Midlands.

It was very encouraging to read that you fully support our proposals.  Please follow the link below to our press release earlier this year, which sets out exactly what Centro is proposing:

The decision to give this scheme the go-ahead is due in the new year and this decision will be taken by the Department for Transport (DfT). Centro are confident that the bid is extremely robust and that we have done everything possible to explain the benefits to the DfT of this scheme.  Once a decision has been reached, I can assure you this will be widely publicised and full details will be available from Centro at the time.

I hope the above information is helpful and would like to thank you for taking the time to contact Centro and for your interest in this project.
