Coventry railway station in line for major makeover

An overhaul to Coventry railway station is included in a multi-billion pound plan to improve transport in the West Midlands.

The combined authority has approved almost £3.5bn worth of schemes to be built over the next decade.

It also includes upgrades to key road junctions in the city, and work on the M6 and A46.

Cllr Roger Lawrence, lead member for transport for the WMCA and leader of City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “The Delivery Plan maps out the way forward for transport in this region in delivering future prosperity.

“Transport is key as we work to ensure the West Midlands punches its weight nationally and globally. HS2 will bring us closer to London and the UK’s other big city regions and make us a world-class place in which to do business.”

“Now that this blueprint has been approved we can get to work in putting it into action.

“These are exciting schemes that will transform transport in our region and steer investment here to create new jobs and homes, building on the significant growth and development that is already happening through HS2.”
