Today sees the unveiling of the new Running In Board at Pershore which has been constructed by Peter Dickenson from Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway, installed by a team from GWR, and funded by the Cotswold Line Promotion Group.
All being well 2021 should see progress on the new car park and connecting footbridge – a joint scheme between Wychavon District Council, Network Rail, and GWR.
In the meantime, the Vale Public Transport Group is developing ideas to improve bus connections into the town from the station.
CrossCountry’s December timetable continues to reflect a reduced service making both their customer’s and colleague’s safety a number one priority:
- Some of the trains run with additional carriages to help customers social distance on-board
- Certain stations have longer stops to ensure there is enough time for customers to board and alight safely
- Book in advance, reserve your seat, and check your journey before you travel.
