Droitwich Spa train station

Droitwich Spa station set to boost passenger experience

Worcestershire County Council are currently working with a variety of organisations to improve the passenger experience at Droitwich Spa Train Station.

The County Council is working with Wychavon District Council, Droitwich Town Council, West Midlands Trains and The Friends of Droitwich Station to bring about the improvements.

Work is underway to improve the pedestrian signage between the station and town centre.

Amenities are also being upgraded at the station itself with improved cycle parking, the installation of an additional rail ticket machine and improved lighting.

Some of this work has already been completed with the remainder set to be completed over the next two years.

Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Highways and Transport Councillor Alan Amos spoke on the improvements being made.

Cllr Amos said: “It is essential that the residents of Droitwich and nearby communities have access to a safe and attractive station.

“Whether they are using the train to get to work, go to school, go shopping or meet friends.

“It’s also important to remember that the station is a gateway to the town for visitors, too, and first impressions are important.

“I am delighted that all of the organisations who have a part to play in improving the rail users’ experience… have joined forces to make this happen.”

Future improvements at Droitwich Spa station are also being planned to bolster the passenger experience.

The provision of additional parking and improved access for cyclists and pedestrians are part of the plans to further improve the station.
