£250M for Midland Metro

Prime Minister Theresa May is to announce £250 million to improve transport in the West Midlands as she visits the region today – including a major extension to the Midland Metro.

The cash will fund an extension of the light-rail Metro from Wednesbury to Brierley Hill in the Black Country which is the location of the MSO Workspace Business Centre on the Waterfront.


It’s the first allocation from a new £1.7 billion “Transforming Cities” fund, designed to improve transport links and promote local growth within city regions across the country.

The money will go to the West Midlands Combined Authority, led by West Midlands Mayor Andy Street and local council leaders.

And the Authority is set to use the cash to fund a new metro line from Wednesbury to the new “DY5 Enterprise Zone” for high-tech businesses at Brierley Hill, running through Great Bridge, Horseley Heath, Dudley Port, Dudley town centre, the Waterfront and Merry Hill, before terminating at Brierley Hill town centre.

This is great news for the local area and a strong endorsement of the investment MSO and other businesses are making in the Brierley Hill area.
