Kidsgrove Town Deal project: Kidsgrove Station

Emerging station enhancements

These include:

  • a generous, high-quality, new ticket office and waiting room
  • a new cafe with internal and external seating
  • secure public cycle storage
  • sustainable, robust, efficient building performance
  • a new station plaza and pedestrian focused landscaping
  • a new bus stop and interchange (subject to agreement)
  • a 200 space carpark with disabled bays and EV charging points
  • a dedicated taxi rank and passenger pickup/dropoff
  • improved community space provision e.g. room for local gardeners
  • integration of pedestrian route from tow-path to station plaza

Other potential enhancements

For example:

  • a newly refurbished waiting room on platform 2/3
  • a new waiting shelter on platform 4
  • replacement of fencing with softer canal-side boundary
  • careful thinning of existing trees and new tree planting
  • improvements to foot and cycle access across the canal into town
  • informal play or leisure provision for all

Comments on the proposals

Although the main consultation took place in February 2022 and the business case has been submitted and approved, your comments are still welcome. This particularly applies to the community space and leisure provision.

If you have any thoughts or ideas about either of these aspects, please email the Kidsgrove Town Deal team.
