Work has now started on the installation of the 3 platforms, each being built in sections onsite but away from the track and then fitted into place. It will take nearly 70 sections to build each of the 265 metre long platforms.
Following installation of the platforms, work will concentrate early in the new year on paving the car park and the landscaping and planting around the site whilst the internal elements of the station building continue to take shape.
Councillor Ken Pollock, Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet member for Economy and Infrastructuresaid: “I’m very pleased and excited about the progress being made on Worcestershire Parkway Rail Station. With the construction of the station building nearing completion, you can really get a sense of the enormity of this infrastructure project that is set to transform rail travel to and from the county.”
Worcestershire LEP has invested a total of £8.3million of Government’s Growth Deal funds into the development of Worcestershire Parkway Station.
