Work to rebuild the West Midlands Metro tram track down Corporation Street by the Midland Metro Alliance is almost complete after Week 13. Some workers said the trams could be running on or before Saturday, October 30, others said it could be early the following week. The service has been out of action since Sunday, July 25 when work began to replace a track which was only officially opened by Ozzy Osbourne five years and two months earlier on May 26, 2016. Midland Metro Alliance has not confirmed the exact reason why the track needed to be replaced, but with the need to build a new Corporation Street delta junction between Bull Street and Lower Bull Street to send future trams on the ?227 million, mile-long Digbeth-bound Eastside extension from 2025 it was decided to do all of the work at once. The track has been replaced from outside of Temple Row / The Minories on Bull Street, all the way down Corporation Street and down Stephenson Place to Stephenson Street between Grand Central and the Apple store.
