Anbody any ideas if they are further forward with this plan, or is it going to die a death?

It's definitely going ahead. Planning permission was granted back in 2009, and the business case was resubmitted in June this year in order to secure 'Devolution Deal' funding from the government. Vegetation was cleared back in January to allow for environmental and structural surveys.

It hasn't been completely cleared yet, there's still a lot of vegetation on the tracks around Dudley area. I do remember a lot of work being done though a few months ago, especially on the area next to the Zoo car park.
