£14.4m Bromsgrove interchange planned

A public consultation is now open on the plans for a £14.4m railway interchange at Bromsgrove. The work is to be jointly funded by Worcestershire County Council and Centro. 

The public’s views will be incorporated as far as possible into the design of the proposed new station, which is to be built around 400m south from the existing building in Ashton Fields. 

Work is due to begin in spring 2014 and be completed by summer 2015. It will include a station building, four platforms connected by a footbridge and lifts, as well as a 350-space car park. 

The new interchange will facilitate electrification of the line between Barnt Green and Bromsgrove, to be carried out by Network Rail. 

Worcestershire County Council's Cabinet Member for transport, Cllr John Smith OBE, said: “This new rail station for Bromsgrove is a great boost for the town and will greatly improve transport choice and connections for residents travelling from and to it. 

“I hope everyone will take the opportunity to give us their feedback on the plans, which will help to ensure the new station is indeed the right station for Bromsgrove.” 

Centro chairman Cllr John McNicholas said: “This is an exciting development for Bromsgrove which will bring great benefits to the town and I would urge people to give us their views.”
