CrossCountry has announced that it has opened the first new railway station in Worcestershire for over 100 years, Worcestershire Parkway.
On Sunday 23 February, Worcestershire Parkway station will join the 118 stations already served by CrossCountry across Great Britain.
Worcestershire Parkway has a large, secure car park, modern facilities and accessible platforms, making it a brilliant way to enter the county.
CrossCountry will serve the station hourly throughout the day, southbound to Gloucester and Cardiff and northwards to Birmingham and Nottingham; onward connections will link the county to almost every part of the country.
GWR services to the Cotswolds and London will also serve the station, making Worcestershire Parkway connected to the rest of Britain. They will enable Worcestershire to continue growing its business and tourism links as the county becomes an even easier place to visit.
What did the officials say?
Tom Joyner, CrossCountry’s Managing Director, said:
“We are delighted that Worcestershire Parkway is now open for business. This new station and its excellent connections will benefit the regions’ rail users, and we look forward to working with the council and other stakeholders to promote its use.
