New Street station: Stainless steel panels to 'transform' look

Thousands of stainless steel panels are to be attached to the outside of Birmingham New Street station to "transform" the way it looks, Network Rail has said.

The new outer skin is part of a £598m redevelopment of the station.

The 20,000 sq m of panels are being made by the Sheffield-based firm Outokumpu.

Ben Herburt, from Network Rail, said: "They will transform what is currently a rather drab concrete building."
