Kidderminster Station

SLC Rail supported Worcestershire County Council to deliver a new station building to meet with growing passenger demand across the Wyre Forest District, improve the customer experience and to be a transformed, attractive gateway between Kidderminster and the National Rail network.

Kidderminster is the second busiest rail station in Worcestershire, located on the Worcester to Birmingham Snow Hill line, adjacent to the Severn Valley heritage line. This line is expected to experience huge growth within the next 10 years with estimates of up to 50% growth expected. It was vital that this work took place to support the Worcestershire Rail Investment Strategy to provide passengers with better travel experience.

The work took place in four phases and saw the station undergo a dramatic redevelopment, including the construction of a new, glass fronted station building, improved forecourt and enhanced bus-rail and pedestrian facilities on the adjacent highway.
