Birmingham £4bn transport plan revealed

Three new tram lines may be built in Birmingham, alongside high-speed bus routes, under a £4bn transport plan.

The city council's 20-year Birmingham Connected scheme also includes details for reopening rail lines and building two new stations.

It said it did not currently have "all the funding in place". Bids are expected to be made for government and European money.

The council said it would also look at the "long-term future" of the A38 through the city centre, including closing existing tunnels and sending traffic along a "substantially upgraded ring road".

Council leader Sir Albert Bore said that could take the form of joining up the tunnels - or even creating a motorway under the city.
