The planned HS2 station at Birmingham Curzon street is supposed to ‘regenerate’ the area around it.
But the area around the site is already largely rebuilt, as a result of plans which pre-date the HS2 project. In fact, some of the new buildings are in the way of the HS2 line, and are now scheduled for demolition.
Parts of the station site have been fenced off for preparatory works.
From the public highway, sawn-up felled trees can be seen inside the main compound.
Or at least, until the nasty and aggressive LM security man comes out, and starts laying the ‘law’ down.
