Parkway station on track to scoop top environmental award

Evesham Editorial 4th Nov, 2022   0

COUNCIL chiefs are celebrating after Worcestershire Parkway railway station was given a top environmental assessment award from a national body.

The station, which opened in February 2020, was presented with a Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment Award (CEEQUAL) and rated as ‘very good’ for being committed to sustainable working and delivering lasting impacts to the local area.

Elements of the project which were highlighted include re-using materials from the project on site and improvements made to the local water environment through the use of better, managed drainage.

Coun Marc Bayliss, cabinet member for Economy, Infrastructure and Skills, said: “Sustainability was a key factor throughout the design and construction phases of the Worcestershire Parkway Railway Station project.




“The station has helped to reduce road congestion and this has been considered through every stage of development. We also demonstrated in the submission how other benefits can be achieved, such as alleviating flooding and improving biodiversity.”

The station, managed by Great Western Railway (GWR), provides sustainable access to regional and national destinations by rail, including the south-west, north-east, London and the Thames Valley.


It is also significantly enhancing Worcestershire’s connectivity with the UK’s key economies and encouraging economic growth and development within the county.
