The footage shows West Midland Metro’s blue trams travelling in both directions along Flood Street - transporting virtual passengers to Wolverhampton and Brierley Hill.

The short video shows how tram stops are likely to look and how the Metro route will interact with vehicle and pedestrian traffic in Dudley.

The footage has been created by designers at Midland Metro Alliance, who are planning and constructing the route on behalf of Transport for West Midlands.

The Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street, said: “This brilliant video clip transports viewers a few years into the future to see an important addition to our region’s transport network.

“The construction of this extension is more important than ever as infrastructure projects, like this one, are critical to our recovery from the global pandemic as they help to generate money for the local economy and secure and create local jobs for local people.

“The Wednesbury to Brierley Hill route will be a huge connectivity boost for the people of Dudley and Sandwell, and it also forms a key part of our wider, ambitious plans for the metro network across the whole West Midlands.”
