Daft and you know it
Extension of the Midland Metro tram on-street in Birmingham city centre to Stephenson Street was featured on BBC Midlands Today (6 May 2014). The scheme, which has a crow-flies length of perhaps 600 metres, has cost more than £140 million of public cash, when new trams and bus stop relocation are factored in.
BBC Television’s footage from the Waterstones Stephenson Street worksite showed the extent of the disruption caused by building the tramway. The transport authority’s Paul Griffiths said that Centro was hoping to get funding for further tram extensions in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.
