Third phase of construction for Wolverhampton City Centre Metro Extension to commence from Monday 9 July 2018

The next phase of the works for the Wolverhampton City Centre Metro Extension will commence from Monday 9 July when construction will begin in Railway Drive.

The Metro Extension is part of the Wolverhampton Interchange, which is a £150m regeneration of the city’s transport hub. When the Metro opens for passenger service, anticipated to be in 2020 after the construction of Wolverhampton Railway Station, the Metro will run from a junction with the existing route close to its terminus at Wolverhampton St George’s through to a new stop at the station allowing easy interchange with other modes of transport as there will also be a new Metro stop at the city’s Bus Station on Pipers Row.

To accommodate these next phase of works, Railway Drive will close from Sunday 8 July and will be accessible to permit holders only. It is anticipated that this phase of works will be completed by autumn 2018.

Phase two of works, which are currently underway in Pipers Row are progressing well and it is anticipated that the road will reopen in time for the return to school at the end of the summer holidays.
