Improvements to facilities at Racecourse station
Better waiting facilities and covered cycle parking along with a ticket vending machine, CCTV and improvements to the footbridge are all on their way to benefit passengers.
Great Western Railway (GWR) has awarded £70,000 from their Customer and Communities Improvement Fund (CCIF).
The recent funding will combine with £150,000 from David Wilson Homes' (DWH) Travel Plan for the housing site, also allocated for improvements at the Racecourse station. The DWH funding was the local contribution that helped to achieve further investment and increase the pot available to £220,000 for the expanded package of improvements.
Daniel Pavely, Project Manager for DWH said: "David Wilson Homes was keen to support this bid for funding and the successful outcome is welcomed. We look forward to these improvements taking place and benefiting residents as well as visitors to the Racecourse. To use our funding to attract even more is a great result and will help to boost our work through the Residential Travel Plan for our site."
