Milestone have been involved in the re-generation project of the Pavilions Shopping Centre in Birmingham which will see the clothing retailer, Primark, take occupation of the building which has suffered decline since the opening of the Bull Ring. The scheme received unanimous approval in January 2016 and the flagship store is due to open in Spring 2018. MTP provided transport planning advice throughout the project, particularly on improvements to the public realm on Moor Street and the provision of a new pedestrian access-way through the store. The access-way will link Moor Street Station to the High Street, improve the connectivity to New Street Station and will serve as a point of connection between the High Street, New Street Station and the arrival of Highway Section 2. The walkway will significantly enhance pedestrian connectivity between public transport hubs and the central retail core of Birmingham as well as ensuring future capacity for the anticipated increase in footfall as result of Highways Section 2.
