A further extract from the Worcestershire County Council web site [as viewed 24 October 2018] .
https://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/info/20624/kidderminster_station_improvements/1414/kidderminster_station_improvements

We are running an open day with partners on Tuesday, November 6 ahead of the main works starting on the redevelopment of the station.

Project staff will be on hand at the station to update the public on the plans and answer questions from 7.30am to 6pm.

Kidderminster Station is the second busiest in the county with almost a fifth of all rail travel in the county either starting or stopping here. It is set to undergo a dramatic redevelopment, including construction of a completely new, glass fronted station building. Once complete, inside the station there will be a new café, fully accessible toilets and an indoor seating and waiting area. Outside, the forecourt will be reshaped with a new drop-off and collection zone, relocated taxi rank and new traffic flow arrangements. The aim is to improve pedestrian safety and increase access and exit flow during the busiest times.

Highway works on Comberton Hill have recently taken place and include improved bus shelters and a new pedestrian crossing. These works are set to further improve access to and from the station.

Work on the station is part of the £50million plus the council is spending between 2016 and 2019 on rail improvements that includes the new Worcestershire Parkway and work already completed on Bromsgrove Station last year.

This forum post is a snapshot extract from an external web site and is not necessarily updated to reflect change. Always refer back to and check the original site to confirm details are still correct.
Tomorrow is the open day.

You could ask but the additional parking spaces are not part of this project.

In my earlier message I asked about the future of the road cobbles. I can report back that the news update from today informs me that a fair amount of the cobbles are to be removed? I am hoping they can be put to good use somewhere else?
