Kidderminster Station Rebuild
In early 2019, work started on rebuilding the main station building at Kidderminster station.  The initial phase of work involved redesigning the station forecourt.  In July 2019, work to demolish the old station building started and replace it with a new, larger, building started.  The new station building opened in June 2020.

The following photographs show the progress as the old building is demolished and the new one built.  All photos were taken from approximately the same location.
