Transport for West Midlands is investing heavily in the rail infrastructure for Birmingham and the surrounding areas with plans for three new stations on the Camp Hill line.
These stations are planned between Kings Norton and Birmingham New Street in Moseley, Hazelwell and Kings Heath.
The station in Kings Heath will be located on the site of its historic counterpart, accessed from land adjacent to Kings Heath High Street.
At the same time as bringing investment into the local area, residents and commuters into the city will benefit from an incredible journey time of less than 15 minutes into New Street Station!
A significant benefit will be the reduction of rush hour congestion along the A435 Alcester Road and the surrounding routes into Birmingham.
This investment into new train stations will definitely make these areas even more popular places to live, as the average price of housing per sqm is often cheaper in the surrounding suburbs than the city centre itself. *
- £2,651 per sqm B1 postcode (Birmingham City Centre)
- £2,056 per sqm B13 postcode (Moseley)
- £1,818 per sqm B14 postcode (Kings Heath)
We strongly anticipate house prices in the immediate vicinity to increase upon completion of these new stations, so if you’re thinking of a house purchase or relocation, now might be the best time to kick start that goal.
Construction on the stations is expected to start by the end of 2020 with a target completion and opening date in Winter 2021/22.
