Station to get 700,000 upgrade
Shrewsbury Railway Station is to get a 700,000 upgrade when direct train services to London begin.

New passenger and freight lifts, toilets and refreshment facilities will be installed at platform three.

Wrexham, Shropshire and Marylebone Railway will start operating trains on the route later this year.

The new service will stop at stations including Gobowen, Shrewsbury, Telford, and Banbury en route to London's Marylebone station.

The Department for Transport, Welsh Assembly and Shropshire County Council are paying for the Shrewsbury station revamp.
