In brief

Plans form a key part of the council’s wider Solihull Masterplan, which sets out a 20-year vision for the development of Solihull town centre, with new jobs, new residents & a new Solihull Station.

With the existing 1938-built station forecast growth in passenger numbers by 2036 – two million to three million passengers – the station will need to be redeveloped to modern standards.

The project, led by Solihull Metropolitan Council (SMBC), Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) and Network Rail, is currently being designed by Hawkins\Brown and Mott MacDonald, in collaboration with Intervention Architecture, Groundwork West Midlands, Chiltern Railways, Savills and Balfour Beatty.

Set around an enlarged new internal public concourse, the redesigned station will include upgraded facilities, a calming indoor garden, retail and food outlets, and improved access to platforms with a new widened underpass and enlarged lifts.

Further boosting the station’s sustainability credentials, numerous features are included, such as on-site energy generation, electric vehicle charging, biodiverse planting and energy efficient systems.

To actively encourage onward travel, a new pedestrian-focused public square will be created to the main entrance, allowing for access to the site’s new 140-space cycle hub. Two new sprint routes will also be offered, alongside a one-way loop to the north of the station for public and private vehicles.

Subject to scheme development and funding, construction of the new station could start between 2024 and 2026.
