Open Day reveals how the new Kidderminster Station will look

As part of an open day held at Kidderminster Station on Tuesday 6 November, Worcestershire LEP joined Worcestershire County Council and partners to reveal a new artist’s impression of how the station will look.

The new image shows the improved forecourt, Comberton Hill layouts and also shows how the new glazed station building will look once completed.

There are four phases of work that will see the station undergo a dramatic redevelopment, including construction of a completely new, glass fronted station building and an improved forecourt.

Phase 1, which includes all the initial survey and prep work, is currently in progress and will continue until the end of December.

Phase 2 will begin in January and will see the start of the forecourt works and the installation of the temporary ticket office.

In Phase 3 the demolition of the existing building will take place and the new glass-fronted building will start to take shape.

The final phase, due for completion next Autumn, will see the fit out and opening of the new station building along with the landscaping outside the station and the final surfacing to the footpaths, access road and removal of the temporary ticket office.

Luke Willetts, Director of Operations at Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “We are proud to have invested £2.5m of Government’s Growth Deal Funds into the transformation of Kidderminster Railway Station. Modernising our county’s transport system is a crucial part of helping people to keep moving and this will ultimately boost productivity for businesses.”
