Construction is almost completed on a new station on CrossCountry’s network - Worcestershire Parkway.
Works are scheduled to be complete by November when, after rigorous testing and commissioning by Great Western Railway (GWR), Network Rail and CrossCountry, the station can finally be opened.
Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet Member, Councillor Ken Pollock said: “I’m really pleased with the progress at the station site over the last few months. A huge effort continues to be made by all concerned to get us ready for the next phase.
“This next phase will be one of the most important, and complex, of the whole scheme where numerous stakeholders, including the train operators and Network Rail, will come together with the aim of getting the station ready to open for public use.”
As the station will be a brand new stop, an in-depth schedule is in place to ensure all GWR and CrossCountry drivers and other train crew are trained and the station’s characteristics.
Finishing touches to the car park lighting and the footway access from Woodbury Lane, as well as lighting in the station building are all under way. Signage will also be installed and the wildlife area, to the left of the station approach, will be landscaped along with other areas of the station.
The aim is for the station to be fully open in time for the rail industry’s national timetable change in December.
Once the station is operational, passengers will be able to access CrossCountry’s services between Cardiff and Nottingham, and GWR services to London.
