David Bull claimed that HS2 Ltd's current images for Birmingham Curzon Street HS2 did not consider the public realmAt Birmingham council’s 2012 Transport Summit, David Bull‘s presentation included HS2 Ltd’s visualisation of the proposed Curzon Street high speed station — but captioned, “current images for the [Curzon Street] HS2 terminal do not consider the public realm”.

David Bull's preferred vision of Moor Street 2026Mr Bull favoured a different vision for the Moor Street / Curzon Street area — a sort of public park, where the cars and buses that currently run along Moor Street were banished. The only vehicle in Mr Bull’s preferred visualisation was a ‘Sprint rapid transit vehicle’ (an articulated bus styled to look like a tram).

If all that wasn’t baffling enough, Mr Bull’s presentation also included a diagram showing a Midland Metro tramway branching off at the Corporation Street/Upper Bull Street intersection, and apparently heading straight through what used to be the Virgin megastore, towards the HS2 station site.
