Better Rail Service

Cotswold Line re-doubling to Evesham

Hooray! At least some Beeching cuts are to be reinstated. Re-doubling of part of the Cotswold line to Evesham is planned to start in Summer 2009 and be completed by May 2010. Let's hope that First Great Western increase the train services accordingly.

That, with the possible Worcestershire Parkway Station at Norton (2015 or later), could make the Vale of Evesham a much easier place to reach and so help to attract investment and boost the local economy. Pity the Evesham Journal only drew attention to the disruption during the work.
