Midlands stations open

The new Bermuda Park and Coventry Arena stations open today (Monday 18 January).  The two stations are part of a £13.6m investment to improve rail services between Coventry and Nuneaton.

This is the first part of a plan to develop the route from Nuneaton to Coventry and Coventry to Leamington Spa.  Later work will include a new platform at Coventry to increase the frequency of services and a new station at Kenilworth.

The investment will give better rail access to jobs, retail, leisure and education across Coventry and Warwickshire while reducing road congestion.

Cllr John McNicholas, Coventry City Council Lead Member for Transport, said: "It's taken a while, certainly longer than we had hoped for, but finally the stations will be open and I'm delighted about that.

"Although the station at the Ricoh won't be open directly after matches or on major event days until Wasps, Coventry City Football Club or events sponsors charter trains, the new service will still provide lots of advantages for local people."  www.londonmidland.com
