£25K grant for Broad­way bridge

Steam Railway (UK) - - NEWS FOCUS -

Broad­way sta­tion foot­bridge is to be fit­ted with steps, thanks to a £25,000 grant from the Glouces­ter­shire War­wick­shire Rail­way Trust to the GWSR plc.

Although Broad­way re­opened to pas­sen­gers on March 30, trains only use Plat­form 1 and the for­mer Hen­ley-in-Ar­den foot­bridge is cur­rently without steps.

The foot­bridge is ex­pected to be ready for use in 2019, although Plat­form 2 still re­quires sur­fac­ing and is not yet ready for trains.

A mem­ber has made a fur­ther do­na­tion to the foot­bridge, while an­other grant of £23,000 from the trust will buy new win­dows for Tod­ding­ton sig­nal box.
