Public exhibition set for Kenilworth station plans

Leamington Editorial 14th Oct, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

TOWNSPEOPLE are being urged to have their say on the design of Kenilworth Rail Station at a public exhibition.

The new £12million station will be built on Priory Road and there are three proposed design concepts for the station building.

The public exhibition will give residents the chance to say which design is their favourite and find out more information about the project.

The exhibition, at Kenilworth Library on Smalley Place, runs from October 23 to 25 – from 10am to 5pm on the Thursday, 10am to 4pm on the Friday, and 10am to 12.30pm on the Saturday.

Warwickshire transport spokesman, Coun Peter Butlin said: “I encourage anyone who has an interest in the new Kenilworth Rail Station to come to the exhibition and see these exciting proposals, find out more and play a part in influencing the design of this important transport facility for the town.

“The construction of the station and the resulting new train service will not only improve local public transport but will also provide a link to rail services beyond the Coventry and Warwickshire sub-region, giving improved access to the economies of London and Birmingham while boosting our own local economy and tourism.”

Construction is set to start next summer, with the station opening planned for December 2016.
