In May 2007 Network Rail announced plans to build a new station at Bromsgrove to replace the existing station. The new station is being built on a brownfield site slightly to the south of the existing one. After lengthy delays planning permission for a new four-platform station was granted in September 2013. The new station is planned to open in 2016 in preparation for an extension of the Cross-City electrification scheme from Barnt Green to Bromsgrove.
The three photographs abovewere taken by Adrian Booth on Sunday 27th July 2014. Two show a rake of JNA type ballast wagons hauled by class 66 diesel locomotive No.66035 whilst the third shows the extent of the works on the new station. A Bradshaw’s owned road/railer can be seen in this photograph.
Plenty of On Track Plant was on site when Andrew Smith visited on 15th August 2014 including Bradshaw's road/railer No.940601-6 prominent in the centre.
On 18th August 2014 Robin Goundry went to the site of the new station and submitted the four photographs shown above which give a clear and detailed set of views showing the progress made.
