Think of a number

with one comment

According to Birmingham city council, an estimated 3,600 passengers each day would pass through the ‘Chernoslug’ HS2 station at Curzon Street.

But according to Centro, 54,000 a day would travel from the two Birmingham stations (Curzon Street and ‘Interchange’ [Bickenhill]).

  1. The HS2 Environmental Statement Volume 5 on Traffic and Transport reveals the following:

    Curzon Street Station HS2 forecast passenger movements per day

    Year
    2026 24,843
    2041 35,065 Phase One
    2041 65,859 Phase Two

    The number of passengers forecast per day at Birmingham Interchange Station is not provided in the Environmental Statement. Passenger numbers for the morning and evening peak hours are provided. By using a similar relationship between peak hours and all day forecasts as used at Curzon Street, we can extrapolate the following approximate forecasts:

    Birmingham Interchange Station HS2 approximate forecast passenger movements per day

    Year
    2026 28,000
    2041 50,000

    It would tend to indicate that both Birmingham City Council and Centro are working on much smaller passenger numbers than HS2 Ltd are expecting.
