New Birmingham railway station names announced following public consultation

Almost 6,000 residents have given their views on naming two railway stations set to be built on the Camp Hill Line in south Birmingham.

Transport for West Midlands and West Midlands Rail Executive were inundated last month after asking for help from local residents to name their stations ahead of full construction beginning this November.

Now, after reviewing the feedback, Mayor of the West Midlands Andy Street has confirmed the stations shall be called Moseley Village and Pineapple Road. The name of the third Camp Hill Line station, Kings Heath, had already been settled.

A £61 million project led by TfWM, which is part of the West Midlands Combined Authority, and the West Midlands Rail Executive will see the three stations built to enable regular passenger services to return to the Camp Hill Line for the first time in 80 years. Mr Street, who chairs the WMCA, added:

“It’s brilliant to see that the naming of these stations has ignited such public interest. It’s a clear sign of just how keen local residents are to see this line reopened and why I have made it such a top priority.

“My task in selecting the winning station names was made very easy as Pineapple Road and Moseley Village emerged the runaway popular choices.

"And so as we bring these stations to life, I hope the community will feel a genuine sense of pride as they see the signs for the names they’ve chosen going up and train services running from the end of next year.”
