Construction work is set to begin in November three new stations in south Birmingham and is expected to be completed later next year.
This forms part of the £61m scheme to reintroduce passenger services to Moseley, Kings Heath and Hazelwell for the first time in 80 years.
Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) has appointed construction firm VolkerFitzpatrick to build the three new railway stations in south Birmingham.
Design work on the project is set to take place later this Spring and will offer people a more environmentally friendly mode of transport in south Birmingham.
West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) is committing £36m towards the project with a further £20m coming from the Department for Transport (DfT).
The remaining £5m is set be provided by Birmingham City Council’s clean air zone fund.
Malcolm Holmes, Executive Director of West Midlands Rail Executive and Rail Director at TfWM spoke on the upcoming project.
Mr Holmes said: “This is a major milestone towards seeing passenger trains restored on the Camp Hill line, with the contractor in place and construction crews gearing up to get on site.
“This means, that after several years of planning and development, we are now entering the final phase.
“It will not be too long before these stations are complete and open to the travelling public.”
