Morning all Wave 31 Jul from BBC news. Call to open two new railway stations Local Democracy Reporting Service There have been calls to reopen a Coventry railway station which closed in 1965 and build another, brand new one. The Conservatives on Coventry City Council say it would help reduce congestion and pollution and perhaps avoid the need for an unpopular pollution charge for motorists entering the city. The Conservative group leader, councillor Gary Ridley, pointed out there was no station between Coventry and Rugby and added: "The city is under represented in terms of train stations." The party has been leafleting people living near the former Coundon Road railway station and has received support from the Conservative West Midlands Mayor, Andy Street. Site of the original Brandon & Wolston station now, picture below from over sixty years ago. My opinion is that any replacement of the former Brandon & Wolston, needs to be a user friendly park & ride.

Given the incredibly high prices quoted for station building I can see no way this will ever happen. Kenilworth cost £4.3m for 50 people an hour - hardly an economic no-brainer
