Chase Line railway stations set for revamp

Shelters and other passenger facilities at railway stations in the West Midlands are to be improved in a £1.6m revamp.

Work at the stations on the Chase Line, in the Black Country and Staffordshire, will take place during the summer.

Planned improvements include better seating, CCTV and lighting, new ticketing machines and electronic information boards.

The project is due to be finished by the autumn.

Councillor Tim Huxtable, member for rail and Metro operations on Birmingham City Council, said he knew how highly passengers valued the Chase Line.

"This work will give them a more comfortable and safer waiting environment and improved travel information, making the journeys even more pleasant and convenient," he said.

Stations getting the improvements are Bloxwich, Bloxwich North, Landywood, Cannock, Hednesford and Rugeley Town.
