CHELTENHAM RAILWAY STATION RECEIVES £10M INVESTMENT
Chamber members will be delighted to know that the Department for Transport has recently confirmed some £10m is to be invested in Cheltenham Railway Station.
Funding will include level access to the platforms via new lifts, additional passenger capacity, more retail space and a better interchange with other transport modes. It is hoped further funding for two additional bay platforms will follow at some time in the not too distant future!
Meanwhile the Intercity Express programme (IEP) is expected to provide an hourly Swindon/Cheltenham service from December 2018.
Your Chamber has been working on this programme for some eight years and so it’s pleasing to see our endeavours coming to fruition.
