The new Worcester Parkway station will serve passengers with a single platform on the North Cotswold line and two other platforms on the Birmingham to Bristol line.

The local council has promised to deliver “a fully accessible modern station building” including a 500 capacity car park and easy access to onward transport routes via local bus services with a bus/rail interchange.

The station comprises a single platform on the Worcester to London line (North Cotswold line) and two platforms on the Birmingham to Bristol line. New buildings will house waiting areas, booking office, toilets and retail facilities.

RTIS’s signalling CRE and Construction Managers have been responsible for all the signalling deliverables associated with this project from GRIP4 development. RTIS also decommissioned and recovered 2 x FP crossings as part of the works. During several enabling stages, cables were diverted into new trough routes behind the platforms which included SSI data, power, lineside and equipment tail cables. Our engineers also inputted to MSRP and attended multiple IDC meetings with the design teams. Sighting forms were checked to the initial concept and discussions with the chair were maintained as the design evolved.
