Construction work will begin this summer and is due for completion in early 2017, with passenger services from Kenilworth operational later in 2017. It is part of a major rail enhancement scheme designed to encourage economic regeneration between Nuneaton and Leamington Spa. The station will be served by a new local service between Leamington Spa and Coventry.
Network Rail will be carrying out significant infrastructure works in spring 2017, including construction of new track at Leamington Rail Station, signalling upgrades and the relaying of the track through Kenilworth.
The new station will be built on Priory Road in Kenilworth. The project is being funded by the Department for Transport (DfT), Warwickshire County Council and Coventry & Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) as part of the Growth Deal initiative.
