The Government is supporting the extension of metro services to Dudley through a £321.5m allocation from the ‘Transforming Cities Fund’ to the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA).

WMCA have decided the majority of this allocation will be used to fund the construction of an extension to the Metro tram network from Wednesbury to Dudley, known as the Brierley Hill extension.

As this is a devolved funding stream, the development and approval of the scheme will be for WMCA to take forward without any need for Department for Transport approval, other than the legal orders.
