The Anonymous Widower

From Coventry To Nuneaton

The Coventry To Nuneaton Line is in the process of being upgraded, as this paragraph from Wikipedia details.

The line runs near to the Ricoh Arena football stadium on the northern edge of Coventry. Funding for two new stations, Coventry Arena and Bermuda Park, was approved in December 2011. New plans will also see the number of carriages increased from 1 to 3 and the service upgraded to half hourly, a new platform built at Coventry station and also future extensions of the line to Kenilworth and Leamington Spa.

After coffee with an old friend in Coventry, I decided to hop to Nuneaton using this line , from where I could get a train back to London.

The pictures show the character of the route and some of the building work at the new Coventry Arena station. I caught a glimpse of work at Bermuda Park station, but was unable to get a picture.

There is a third station being built in the area and that is Kenilworth station on the related Coventry to Leamington Line.

I think that the ambitious team that run Chiltern Railways will be looking to at least get a feeder service running from Nuneaton to Leamington, via Coventry and Kenilworth.

If HS2 goes ahead and Euston station is rebuilt, this could be an invaluable route to take pressure off the West Coast Main Line
