Driving through Birmingham has always been tricky but a key route in the city centre has suddenly changed - causing potential chaos for many motorists and cab drivers.

It may only be 150-yards long, but the one-way system on one stretch of road in the city centre has been switched, with traffic now heading in the opposite direction.

The council has permanently reversed the flow on upper Hill Street as well as blocking the end off where it meets New Street.

The move, which has been made to facilitate the Midland Metro extension across the top end of New Street close to where it meets higher Hill Street, will bring Christmas chaos according to a leading black cab taxi boss.

Black cabs make U-turns to currently park on both sides of Navigation Street near to the exit from New Street Station – but they can now only use two routes out of the area instead of three

Other traffic on Navigation Street after using the Mailbox main entrance, Grand Central Car Park or Town Hall Car Parks also been reduced to two means of ‘escape’.

TOA Taxis’ chairman Manawar Hussain fears that one traffic incident will bring the city to a halt.
