The other side of the fence


Work to extend Birmingham metro,  Victoria Square,  Birmingham,  June 201

Major digging is underway in Birmingham to make substantial extensions to their tram network. By 2026 it will be possible to hop on a battery-powered tram to connect to the airport.

The work is well underway, with Queen Victoria checking on progress. The project has, in fact, been delayed at times by archaeological findings. Just this summer, the traces an old path was found beneath the works here in Victoria Square, and have been identified as an eighteenth century road.

  1. It’s an interesting city, Brum. A feeling of going places. Which, of course , you’ll be able to when the airport link is complete. Thanks for the update, Debs. 🙂 🙂


  2. Beautiful choice! As a kid I wanted to be an archaeologist- I think it’s fascinating when they make discoveries but the drudge between discoveries put me off of the idea!
