CONSTRUCTION of Worcestershire Parkway station is at an advanced stage.
The station, situated east of Norton Junction and close to the M5 junction 7, will have two platforms on the Birmingham to Bristol line, and a single platform on the Cotswold Line from Worcester Shrub Hill.
The station will have three 265 metre platforms and a 500-space car park, with scope to add more spaces in the future by adding a mezzanine level.
The three platforms and final fit out of the car park are due for completion in the first part of 2019 ahead of the station then being commissioned.
Further details regarding the plan for completion will be announced in 2019. It will be served by both GWR and CrossCountry services, the latter of which does not currently serve any stations in Worcestershire. Photo: WORCESTERSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL
