Blythe Bridge Station Project

Blythe Bridge station is in the Staffordshire County Council Local Authority area and is the only remaining station in the Staffordshire Moorlands. Annual footfall is 95,784 (based on Office of Rail and Road station usage).

Thanks to great support from Staffordshire County Council, Forsbrook Parish Council, East Midlands Trains and the local community, we have been able to deliver a number of improvement projects at Blythe Bridge station, including

  • Improved waiting shelter facilities for passengers  - anti-vandal specification
  • New platform seating
  • Closed circuit TV (CCTV)
  • Customer Information Screens (CIS) with public address (as part of our multi-station bid to Access for All (2008))
  • Encouragement of station adoption by the local community – Blythe Bridge was officially adopted by Forsbrook Parish Council in 2007 and was our first station volunteer project
  • Clearance and replanting of all station garden areas, which are now improved and managed by the Blythe Bridge station volunteer team, and station planters for seasonal colour
  • Community involvement noticeboards to encourage community support for the station
  • A poster art project by children from Forsbrook Primary School to help brighten the station

Find out more about how station volunteers and the local community now, through our work, support Blythe Bridge and other stations on the North Staffordshire Line
