Buckingham group awarded £22m Worcestershire Parkway contract [RTM]

Date: 23/02/2017

Worcestershire County Council has appointed Buckingham Group to construct the new Worcestershire Parkway station, with a completion date set for Winter 2018-19. The scheme for the station, close to junction 7 on the M5, is worth £22m and construction will commence on the project in autumn. The new build will serve passengers with a single platform on the North Cotswold line and two other platforms on the Birmingham to Bristol line as it aims to address Worcesters poor accessibility to and from London as well as create easier connections to the CrossCountry network. The council has promised to deliver a fully accessible modern station building including a 500 capacity car park and easy access to onward transport routes via local bus services with a bus/rail interchange.
