Worcester Foregate Street is the busiest railway station in
Worcestershire, accommodating well over a million rail passengers
The refurbishment of Worcester Foregate Street Station forms
part of the Worcester Transport Strategy, which involves a package
of investment in a wide range of transport infrastructure and
service enhancements. This will deliver benefits not only locally,
but also across the wider region, improving access and network
efficiency for all users travelling into, through and/or around the
City of Worcester transport network. In particular, this investment
will make Worcester more attractive to business, supporting the
local and regional economy. This investment has enabled this
important interchange to continue to perform its strategic role as
one of the principal gateways to the city. As such, the
attractiveness of Worcester Foregate Street is critical to welcome
visitors and ensure that the city remains Open for Business. The
Worcester Foregate Street Station project has been developed in
partnership with London Midland and Network Rail.
The investment that took place included:
- Improvements to the main entrance, including a new canopy,
automatic doors and decor
- Improvements to the rear entrance including a new canopy,
automatic doors and enclosure of the lift within the building
- Upgrades to the Customer Information System
- Improvements to the Travel Centre including new flooring,

- Complete subway renovation including new ceiling, tiled floors,
a wall panel system and lighting

Foregate Street Station with new canopies and entrances to both
platforms making the station more welcoming. Automatic doors are
