£18m Midland Metro extension is given the Green light.

Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin has granted formal approval for the £18m Midland Metro tram extension to Wolverhampton.

Preparatory utility diversion works will now begin on the extension, which will connect the Midland Metro to Wolverhampton's bus station and railway station, due to open in 2019.

The route will take trams along Pipers Row, stopping directly outside the bus station before continuing on to the railway station which will also be redeveloped as part of the Wolverhampton Interchange Project.

The Metro scheme is being carried out by Transport for West Midlands, the transport arm of the West Midlands Combined Authority in partnership with the City of Wolverhampton Council and Neptune Developments.

The project will support the ongoing redevelopment of land next to the railway station which is expected to see £120m of investment and 1,400 new jobs.
