Midland Metro fly-through of route through Birmingham


Did Robert Miles do an album in the late 90s called ‘Plinky Shit for Architecture Fly-throughs’?

There’s also a bloke seemingly straining to create a dirty protest opposite Rackhams.

    erm, very informative. I didn’t recognise a single landmark. Is this actually Birmingham? A route map would be nice – anyone know where this metro will go? Anywhere useful like suburbs?

    you can see Rackhams quite clearly, it then ends up (at the finish) at
    the new New St Station on Stephenson St (which is probably why you
    don’t recognise it as it isn’t currently there.)

    Here’s the route and that

    Have they done this for people too lazy to walk from Snow Hill to New St?

    The last bit was Stevenson Street and before that was Corporation Street

    You can’t tell it’s Birmingham mainly because it’s too tidy. No rubbish scattered along all the pavements, shrubberies and verges. Buildings all grime-free, sun shining.
    Deffo not Brum.
    It’s like one of those Technology of the Future TV shows from 1965. Except that this one would have fit in at that time. So releasing it now makes it only, erm, 45 years late! Does that mean three will come along at once, now?

    So clearly Birmingham….even ‘The Square Peg’ Wetherspoons is there in all its glory!
