Aldridge station

Please note: Station design is subject to further development and approval

We are delivering a brand new £30m station at Aldridge. The proposed station will be served by a half-hourly train service between Walsall and Aldridge, providing an easy interchange at Walsall to get to Birmingham.

The station will provide rail travel to the local community for the first time in nearly 60 years. This will have a wide range of benefits such as:

  • Reduced congestion on the roads
  • Encouraging greener alternatives to the car
  • Making it easier to travel for work, education or leisure

Transport for West Midlands and Network Rail are already working together to kick off the specification and design of the new station.

The proposal

The current plans are for a single platform station to be built on the edge of Aldridge town centre.

Initially, we plan for the station to be served a half-hourly diesel shuttle service to Walsall, where passengers will be able to interchange with electric services to and from Birmingham.

We are exploring ways of delivering future electric services to Aldridge with our partners.

Latest news

In May 2023, the Department for Transport gave conditional approval for us to start work on an outline business case for the station.

We are working on the next, more detailed, design phase of development alongside our partners. This includes undertaking detailed surveys of the station site.
