Substantial investment in recent years, has significantly improved Shrewsbury Railway Station, with more projects planned to secure its long term future as one of Shrewsbury’s finest historic buildings.
Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury and Atcham said:
“I am overwhelmed by the commitment shown by Network Rail and Arriva Trains Wales to improve the station for its customers. With the direct rail link to London we are seeing more and more people using Shrewsbury Railway Station and I consider that it is important for visitors to have a good first impression of the town, and a well maintained, attractive railway station is essential.
The improvements made so far, particularly to the reception and waiting areas has enhanced the appearance of the station considerably and the next planned projects to refurbish the toilets is welcomed as they are in need of a makeover. The restoration of the glass canopy over the platforms will also provide a much brighter environment for people waiting for their train.”
Mark Langman, Route Managing Director for Network Rail said:
“We are currently delivering the biggest investment in the railway since Victorian times to help build a bigger and better railway for passengers. We are seeing more and more people travel by rail and the station improvements at Shrewsbury Station help cater for this huge growth in passengers.
Revitalising stations like Shrewsbury can help boost the local economy and create a station that the town can take a real pride in.”
Lynne Milligan Customer Services Director from Arriva Trains said:
“Shrewsbury Station is a key rail hub and the improvements made, plus those planned, will continue to enhance the experience for our customers.”
