These images show how a £31 million project to extend the Midland Metro through Birmingham would look.
Transport authority Centro has today released images and fresh details of the scheme as they prepare to put plans out to consultation.
The proposals would see the tram extend through Paradise Circus, past the historic Town Hall and up to Centenary Square, passing the £188.8m new Library of Birmingham.
It is on top of a multi-million pound extension of the system which is already taking place.
Under the new proposals, trams would run from the new stop on Stephenson Street outside New Street Station, before travelling along Pinfold Street, Victoria Square, Paradise Street and Broad Street before terminating at Centenary Square.
New stops would be created at the Town Hall and Centenary Square.
Sandwell Councillor Roger Horton, who is also Centro’s lead member for rail, said: “Work is already underway to connect the Midland Metro to both New Street and Snow Hill stations and we want to build on that and further improve the network in Birmingham city centre.
“These plans would play a significant role in supporting some of the major redevelopment work taking place in the city which will bring about an extra £2 billion for the economy and create up to 40,000 jobs.
“This extension would provide passengers with a stop right at the heart of some of Birmingham’s key destinations like the new library, the NIA and the ICC.”
The proposals have been drawn up in partnership with Birmingham City Council. Residents and businesses are now being urged to give their views on the plans and a public consultation is now being launched with the first exhibition on plans taking place tomorrow.
