Journey times to Birmingham New Street throughout the day by Matthew Somerville

|This video shows the public transport journey times to Birmingham New Street from the surrounding areas over the course of a day. The whiter the area, the quicker the journey time at that point. For example, whenever Wolverhampton (in the top left corner) pulses, that is when a fast train to Birmingham has just pulled in, and so the journey time to New Street from that area is at its minimum. There are various limits imposed, but this is an old video and I’ve forgotten what they are – probably things like 10 minute walk maximum at the start, 5 minutes interchange, etc. It’s more art than useful, and quite hypnotic :-)

The top right pulse is Tamworth, and you can clearly see e.g. the Cross City line pulse out to the south of the centre every 10 minutes, curving up from Longbridge/Redditch.”
