Willenhall and Darlaston railway stations
We're opening two new station on the Walsall to Wolverhampton line. The stations will cut journey times to places like Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Walsall.
We’re investing £54 million in 2 new stations at Willenhall and Darlaston. This is part of the West Midlands Rail Programme (WMRP).
The stations will cut journey times to places like Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Walsall. Journeys will be up to 3 times quicker.
The new stations will also open up rail travel to the local community. This will have a wide range of benefits, including:
- making it easier to travel for work, education or leisure
- reduced congestion on the roads
- encouraging greener alternatives to the car
- improved station access for everyone
The project will create more than 120 jobs during construction. It will also restore more than a hectare of brownfield land. Brownfield land is land that was used for industrial or commercial purposes in the past.
