Here’s what an underground tube system could look like in Birmingham.
Is it time for Birmingham to have its own underground?
Many of the world’s greatest cities have underground systems – but not Birmingham.
London, New York, Tokyo and dozens of cities in China can all boast tube networks connecting people across busy urban centres.

The editor of CityMetric, an arm of the New Statesman, has outlined how he sees it could work for what is one of Europe’s fastest growing cities.
In London, the new – largely underground – Crossrail project is connecting the home counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Essex, with London.
Jonn Elledge asks whether it’s time a new Crossrail-style tunnel was created under Birmingham after spending time in the city recently.
