BROMSGROVE STATION (NEW BUILD)

Grid Reference: SO 967693

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.
