Worcestershire Parkway Station forms part of the wider £50million plus rail investment programme in Worcestershire and is a key part of the longer term Worcestershire Rail Investment Strategy.

This scheme will provide sustainable access to regional and national destinations by rail, including the south-west, north-east, London and the Thames Valley. This will significantly enhance Worcestershire’s connectivity with the UK’s key economies and encourage economic growth and development within the county.

An objective of Worcestershire Parkway is to also remove existing regional and national car journeys from the strategic road network, thereby reducing road traffic congestion.

Our scheme, developed up to GRIP stage 4 will be built to serve both railway lines when it comes into use, and will include:

  • a car park with a capacity of up to 500 spaces (including disabled parking) designed to current standards in terms of lighting, CCTV, ticketing, customer facilities and information;
  • a fully accessible modern station building with toilets, ticket desk, and a retail facility;
  • a single platform on the North Cotswold Line and two platforms on the Birmingham to Bristol Line that will be fully accessible;
  • secure cycle storage, motor cycle parking and electric car charging points;
  • direct access to local bus services through a bus/rail interchange
  • taxi rank and drop off/pick up point;
  • roundabout access to the station from the B4084.

The site for the station lies within a rural environment and the scheme will take account of and mitigate against any environmental impact the development might have.
