Worcester Shrub Hill canopy renovation work under way

Platform canopies at Worcester Shrub Hill station are being repaired, reglazed and repainted as part of a £5.8m investment by Network Rail.

The work to restore the canopies is now under way and is expected to be completed in spring next year. Train services using the station will not be affected by the project.

The Grade II-listed Georgian-style station was built in the early 1850s and was given listed building status in 1971.

Cathleen Meehan, the Network Rail project manager, said: “It’s great to be returning to Worcester Shrub Hill and investing a significant amount to improve this historic station and secure its future for the next generation.

“I’d like to thank passengers for their patience while we complete this essential work to keep the station looking its best for years to come.”

The work on the platform canopies follows the restoration in 2021 of the station’s historic luggage bridge, which connects platforms 1 and 2.

Later this year, new lifts for use by passengers will be installed in the bridge as part of the Government’s Access for All scheme, which provides funding to improve facilities at stations for disabled passengers.
