  17. Coventry could get three more train stations

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    Coventry could get three more train stations, under plans outlined by the city council.

    It is proposing reopening two former train stations at Coundon and Foleshill, and building a brand new one at Binley and Willenhall, in the east of the city.

    Rail track

    The idea was backed by full council yesterday and the first step will be a feasibility study with the West Midlands Combined Authority.

    The Conservative group on the council launched a campaign to reopen Coundon station, plus a new site in July and got the backing of the West Midlands mayor Andy Street.

    Councillors also agreed to write to the Department of Transport to ask for a direct link between Coventry and the East Midlands, to double track the line from Coventry to Leamington, to electrify the line from Coventry to Nuneaton, and for reassurances that three express trains an hour between Coventry and London will continue.
