Good news for station users

The Parish Council is delighted to report welcome progress with two key parish council campaigns associated with Barnt Green station:
(i)   having originally planned not to provide lifts at the new Barnt Green station foorbridge, it seems that Network Rail have now accepted the need for this to be done;
(ii) Network Rail have also indicated that when the new electrified rail service starts running from Bromsgrove, a direct Barnt Green to Bromsgrove rail service will be provided.
Cllr John Jagger commented that he was delighted with the news and looked forward to a formal announcement from Network Rail in the near future.
