Passengers travelling from Birmingham New Street station on Friday nights and weekends are being asked to allow extra time for their journeys owing to the huge increase in passengers over the Christmas period.
From today (Friday December 6) Network Rail will be implementing crowd control measures at the station over weekends to prevent overcrowding on the platforms. At busy times, passengers may be asked to wait a short while on the station concourse to allow platforms to clear.
Over the next three Friday nights and weekends until Christmas, crowd control measures will be in place at New Street station at the following times:
- Friday 1500-2300
- Saturday 0900-2300
- Sunday 1100-2300
