New Station Move

Plans for a new railway station at Foleshill were due to come a step closer today.

Coventry City Council’s Environment and Transportation Policy Team discussed the feasibility of a new station on the Coventry to Nuneaton line and was expected to push on with the plan.

A study commissioned by Warwickshire County Council, Coventry City Council and Centro found that journey times between Coventry and Nuneaton would not be increased by a new station.

Foleshill has been recommended as the site and any new station is likely to be tied in with the Arena 2000 project which is currently be assessed by the government.

The council is now wants locations to be assessed for passenger demand and engineering feasibility, and for Railtrack and Central Trains to look into the commercial side of any development.

Railtrack are already proposing to relay eight of the 20 miles of track along the route and a further 1425 yards of track will need relaying for the Sprinter trains to reach the required speed of 60 miles-an-hour.
